Legal norms are key resources for ensuring state development in all strategically important areas, including transport. In the Transport Strategy of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2030 (approved by the order of the Government of the Russian Federation of November 22, 2008 No. 1734-r), one of the priority problems is “improvement of the regulatory framework to develop transport system and transport services’ market, including the development of regulatory and legal framework governing the improvement of transport services’ quality; ensuring the mobilization training of transport organizations and their fulfillment of military transport duties; ensuring the development of public-private partnership mechanisms that provide for a clear legislative distribution of rights, responsibilities and risks between the state and the investor, as well as defining the priority areas for application of these mechanisms in the field of transport”. In the Concept of transport personnel training until 2035 (approved by the order of the Government of the Russian Federation of February 6, 2021 No. 255-r), the training of personnel for legal transport activities was included among the key tasks of the transport education development, and transport law was included in the list of issues that will take an important place in the educational and scientific agenda of transport educational organizations.
