Why are the relationships between various legal acts based on the principle of hierarchy?

The hierarchy of legal acts is predetermined by the peculiarities of our state, first of all, by the fundamental principle of federation, as well as by the legal status of state bodies and officials.

The Constitution, as a fundamental legal act, consolidates the foundations of the constitutional system of Russia, therefore it occupies a leading position in the system of the hierarchy of acts and determines their essence. Next come: federal laws (constitutional and current), federal bylaws, regional laws and bylaws, then municipal acts and local regulations of enterprises and institutions. In fact, the hierarchy is according to the degree of importance and territorial affiliation.

With the help of hierarchy, the legal force of an act is established, in which lower-level acts should not contradict higher-level ones. This strengthens the rule of law in the country as well as uniformity of enforcement. Agree, it would be illogical if the right to education was enshrined at the federal level, but in some region the local residents were deprived of this right.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
