The evolution of angular momentum during the collapse of protostellar clouds is investigated. The criteria for the efficiency of magnetic braking of rotation and angular momentum transfer are obtained analytically. These estimations are confirmed by the results of two-dimensional numerical simulations in the case of a frozen-in magnetic field.
