Complexity measures allow for reflecting on critical issues and estimating the efficiency of various processes and systems. To better organize the functioning of the legal domain, it is rational to use complexity measures. In essence, any legal process is an information process in the legal domain, involving one or several legal systems. Thus, the goal of this work is the development of theoretical and practical tools for the estimation of complexity of information processes, that is, complexity measures in the legal domain, with the goal to ameliorate functioning of the legal systems.
