The article analyzes the controversial legal question of the possibility of allocation of international law in an independent legal system. The legal system is a complex phenomenon that makes up one of the subsystems of society, along with the political system, economic, spiritual and cultural, etc.and includes the system of law, the system of legislation, sources of law, lawmaking and the application of law, as well as other factors in the field of law, on the basis of which it is possible to characterize the national legal system. There is a point of view that the above concepts of the content of the national legal system are applicable to the definition of the international legal system, as the above elements are quite correlated with it. However, it should be noted that the international legal system is an independent legal system that does not replace the concept of the national legal system. The question of expediency of consideration of not supranationality, but mutual influence of the international and national legal systems is proved.
