  1. Legal Awareness formation pathway.

«Are you in the following ways to obtain legal knowledge» survey (Table 6), given 14 ways, choose the proportion exceeds 50 % of the 9 species, indicating the formation of legal consciousness teenagers are more diverse ways, in different ways there is a big difference in the degree of influence on the way young people. Among them, the high degree of influence school classroom education, network news, the rule of law relating to television programs on the rule of law forming adolescent awareness are more than 85 per cent, and to participate in legal knowledge contests, attend a public trial court, to law firms and other legal service agencies Consulting the extent of the impact is less than 20 %.

Third, research and discussion.

  1. Juvenile Law presented cognitive imbalance.

Survey results show that the different name of the law and the rule of law, there is a large degree of teenagers know the difference, cognitive content presentation imbalance. First, in relation to the same branches of law, on the «Protection of Minors Act», the name of the rule and awareness are high, while the «Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency», the name and rules alerted extent are low. These two laws are closely related to adolescent growth and development, it is the result of differences in the cognitive level, on the one hand due to the local laws and regulations that Beijing has not yet issued «Regulations on Preventing Juvenile Delinquency», resulting in far less aware of the extent of Beijing City supporting local laws and regulations «protection of minors Act», on the other hand the law itself operability is not strong, the lack of effective outreach related to the starting point. Secondly, in relation to the different branches of law, awareness of «Civil Law» name awareness and «Consumer Protection Law» lower specific rules, instructions teenagers for the lower levels of civil and commercial awareness, and the «Criminal Law» there is a certain gap «security administration punishment law» and other public law legal categories. Although the traditional influence of Characteristics of Ancient Legal Culture in this regard, on the other hand also with China has not yet promulgated the Civil Code, on the lack of civil and commercial law related outreach. Finally, the same name and the specific rules of the law, the legal name of the adolescents' awareness of and extent of the specific rules of law do not have to master the necessary positive relationship. Such as adolescents, «Public Security Administration Punishment Law» name awareness is relatively low, only 58.1 %, but this method involves prohibition rules, the correct answer to a higher rate (the lowest ratio of 79.8 %). This is because the law for the offense is often an important part of adolescent daily behavior norms of education. This shows that sex education for young people daily behavior norms is an important way to enhance the legal awareness level of teenagers.

  1. The Juvenile Justice Law emotional environment, values, socialization, and many other factors influenced by/

Trust young people from the legal point of view, the data in Table 4 shows that 78.7 % of young people trust the rule of law, but also the role of 19 % of young people do not trust the law and its implementation, the emergence of conflicts and disputes tend to «silence» or private relief resort to alternative legal solution. «Money worship», «rule of man thinking» is an important reason for this distrust, indicating that adolescents trust the rule of law depends not only on the complete extent of the law itself, but also directly affected by multiple factors in the social atmosphere, judicial environment, such as the relationship of the right and the law, the relationship between law and morality, law enforcement judicial credibility and so on.

From teenagers’ degree of respect for the law point of view, the data in Table 5 shows that although teenagers respect the rules, maintain awareness of the overall legal authority in good condition, but with the growth of grades, choose to comply with legal rules in descending order of proportion. High school teenagers, individual consciousness, high level of socialization, while leaving because of academic pressure to reduce the strength of the rule of law education, the degree of respect for the law is often less than the low-grade adolescents, such as grade three select A for the observance of traffic rules 78.1 % Select the first grade than the proportion (86.2 %) lower by 8.1 percentage points. This shows that awareness of the rule of law education and training is not once and for all, older adolescents, the higher the level of socialization, the more awareness education should strengthen the rule of law.

  1. Rule of Law conscious teenagers having single mode passive and vivid visualization features.

Survey shows that the impact of school classroom education, network news, the rule of law relating to television programs on the rule of law awareness teenagers formed more than 85 %, whereas these three methods are based on single infusion guide in the form of passive acceptance enable young people, their parents, peer groups this interactive way to communicate the impact of accounting for respectively 76.1 %, 64.7 %, proactive approach to law firms and other legal service advice only 11.3 %, indicating that adolescents are more likely to get legal knowledge of passive acceptance, interactive the communication followed, tendency actively acquire knowledge of the law is weak. Which occupy the highest percentage of school classroom education is the most effective way to consciousness of teenagers Rule of Law. Therefore, pay special attention to strengthening the rule of law and strengthening design education in primary school classroom this battlefield. At the same time, the Internet has become an important way of information and awareness of key areas affecting teenagers Rule of Law, in particular the impact was great news network, and the school classroom education is almost the same. This means that in addition to the rule of law education into the classroom, but also the need to strengthen the rule of law education and guidance network information, education and information so that the Internet has become a positive classroom education complementary relationship, to avoid the negative impact of bad network information for the rule of law education. In addition, the way the attractiveness of perspective, teen favorite fresh vivid and intuitive way the rule of law mission, such as the rule of law relating to television programs, watch movies or TV shows and other traditional static methods such as the text of the rule of law missionary pamphlets, street legal advertising, display panels, etc., have not attractive. Therefore, the future formation of the rule of law foster awareness designed in a way to be passive and vivid visualization of individual characteristics of the organic integration of the two, maximize awareness of the rule of law culture to enhance the effect.

Fourth, Reflections and recommendations.

Work should be done to raise Legal awareness of childhood enlightenment and legal literacy to training system. Young people are in the formation of outlook of the world, life and values and their sense of the rule of law will not form spontaneously, but must rely on external publicity and education Therefore, to break the current problems existing in the rule of law awareness adolescents, teenagers need to follow to raise the overall awareness of the rule of law objectives and requirements, to build national, school, family and society, «four in one» Teen Law missionary pattern.

  1. Focus on teenagers Law Awareness Training to enhance co-ordination of planning/

Groups of young people to develop awareness of the rule of law on the formation of the future of society and the consolidation of the rule of law plays a vital role. There was a need to develop awareness of Adolescent enhance the rule of law as a dedicated co-ordinate a strategy to continue to promote the content. Conceptually from simple «legal education» into a comprehensive «legal consciousness» to enhance the culture, not only to achieve universal access to education of legal knowledge, but also to focus on training young people and firm rule of law and good emotional behavior habits, tips the use of the rule of law and the concept of the rule of law thinking, respect tolaw. Give full play to the functions of propaganda, culture, education departments and people's organizations in the legal education, relying on state organs «Who Enforcement Who popularizing» the Franco-Prussian accountability, the establishment of judges, prosecutors, law enforcement officers, lawyers for the law enforcement process system teens education law norms, leading the formation of party committees and governments, school social work pattern to participate.

  1. Enhance law enforcement, judicial credibility.

The party's eighteen Fourth Plenary Session stressed the authority of the law from the heart and sincere support of the faith of the people. Support and faith are the result of a fair and effective implementation of the law. The foregoing analysis shows that the rule of law emotion teenagers affected judicial environment, social trends, and many other factors, the strict enforcement of judicial conduct impartial, fair and just legal environment is important to cultivate the soil adolescent consciousness rule of law. Therefore, law enforcement on the one hand to the judiciary to uphold principles of law, adherence to laws, norms discretion, fair and impartial administration of justice to do law enforcement, in particular, according to the law and properly handle major sensitive cases good public concern and interest in the case of incidents involving juveniles, continued enhance the credibility of the community to create positive energy; on the other hand to adhere to procedural justice, not to eliminate, as chaos, as incomplete, and implement the special procedural rules concerning youth protection, and strive to ensure that judicial handling of procedural justice, but also we should actively explore in handling cases involving juveniles in compliance with the requirements of physical and mental development of young people working model, and the Franco-Prussian at work, role in law enforcement, so that young people feel the legal authority, fairness and caring.

  1. Further promote the rule of law education into the national education system.

Education authorities should adhere to the principle of the main channel of the rule of law awareness classroom education provided legal education courses in the education system independent and continue to effectively carry out educational activities, to change the current status of the rule of law awareness programs relying on the moral, ideological and political curriculum, arrange independent the lesson plans and teachers, highlighting the rule of law and the independence of the importance of knowledge of the course, the rule of law to ensure the continuity of the course of education. To focus on the rule of law to address adolescent cognitive level of imbalance, to develop a comprehensive legal education programs, scientific, systematic, rule of law textbooks, centered on the Constitution and the relevant laws and regulations related to citizens' basic rights and obligations and adolescent growth and development into syllabus textbooks content, paying particular attention to «prevention of Juvenile delinquency Act» and daily life involved in civil and commercial law, rules of conduct and other bottom line into them, the effective promotion of the rule of law overall cognitive teenagers, students good at using legal methods to resolve conflicts and disputes of good habits. Development of audiovisual education in line with the rule of law to write young students cognitive characteristics and capacities of understanding, video materials, used in classroom teaching use, the use of new media and distributed Internet terminal equipment to promote and enhance participation of young people learning initiative.

  1. Strengthen the Rule of Law and the boot management.

Research shows that school education is the main battlefield of the rule of law and the position of adolescent education, must play a leading role model driven. Schools should establish and improve the discovery of juvenile delinquency, treatment, intervention mechanism, according to the law, fair and just settlement of all types of students appear contradictory problems, enhance the quality of teachers rule of law, and resolutely put teachers violated the legal rights of students, for young people to establish awareness of the rules, the concept of good education fair example. To strengthen the guidance and management of adolescent proper use Internet terminals to prevent the adverse impact of the site, microblogging, letters and other false, negative information on young people's ideological consciousness, rational view of public events guide young people and the rule of law. Research shows that the average age of teenagers first occurrence of bad behavior is only 12.25 years, which coincided with the age of transition from primary to junior high school stage, so to «Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency Act», the educational content provided in the upper primary stage begins open, forward the prevention of juvenile delinquency Legal Education mark. Meanwhile, with the upgrading of student age, grade growth, we must continue to increase the rule of law and education efforts to prevent young people in individual socialization process due to lead to a decline ignore the rule of law and legal awareness education.

  1. Actively promote family education law.

Family education has a pivotal role in the growth of young people, especially teenagers to cultivate awareness of the rule of law form a direct and profound impact. Survey results show that 76.1 % of young people through the exchange of legal knowledge with parents, parents understand the law, and the emotional level of trust in the law, the value tends to affect the formation of adolescent awareness of the rule of law. Therefore, the need to develop parent education, the rule of law as a parent education and vocational education an important part of promoting the rule of law education rising proportion of families in education. On the one hand to help parents improve their legal literacy, understand and comply with, «Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency Act», Content «Domestic Violence Law» and «Law on the Protection of Minors», on the other hand its positive guidance in their daily lives to their children conduct legal education, focusing on daily communication, focus on training of their children good habits and good at guiding young people to establish awareness of the rules by events around the typical case, the concept of fairness, law-abiding behavior.

  1. Create a good social environment and atmosphere for public opinion.

For adolescents with age, socialization raise overall awareness of the rule of law will be to reduce the problem, it is necessary to make greater efforts in terms of creating a good social environment and public opinion atmosphere. By relying on the community to carry out the rule of law seminars, exchange report, legal advice, assistance cases; relying on law enforcement, the judiciary law enforcement judicial observation, theme Open Day; rely on education, justice and other departments to establish the rule of law adolescent education website, microblogging, micro letter public number; relying on news broadcasting sector creative play television programs works about the rule of law education for young people, themed entertainment interactive activities; relying on the Communist youth League and other organizations to carry out anti-drug education, moot court, theatrical performances, a variety of legal and cultural activities; relying on professional social organizations in education treatment services, legal aid services, etc., to build a comprehensive legal education and training of adolescent social network system.
