The purpose of the article is to conduct a comparative analysis of the legal technique of enshrining the principle of land law in a number of post-Soviet states. The study sources are the Constitutions and Land Codes of the post-Soviet states enshrining the land law principles. The methodological basis of the study consists of the formal-legal analysis (interpretation method) of normative legal acts and the comparative-legal method. The authors consider the land law principles as the initial, basic normatively fixed ideas underlying the legal regulation of land relations. In Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine, the primary land law principles are enshrined in Constitutions and Land Codes. The minimum number of land law principles enshrined in the Land Codes of post-Soviet states ranges from five to twelve. Simultaneously, in the legislation of any state, there is no exhaustive list of land law principles.
