The relevance of the article is the need to clearly identify the place of Ukrainian law among other legal systems in the world. The study focuses on domestic and foreign legal systems, most notably Romano-Germanic and Anglo-American legal families. The following research methods were used when writing the study: comparative law, analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction, etc. The purpose of this paper is to determine the place of Ukrainian law among other systems of law in the world. To achieve this goal, the following research objectives were set: to analyze the main properties of domestic and foreign legal systems; to determine directions of improvement of the domestic legal system, using the positive experience of foreign countries.
The authors conclude that the Ukrainian legal system needs improvement and further integration into the Romano-German legal system. At the same time, some of the past generations of domestic lawyers and scholars deserve to be rethought in the modern era. By providing a starting point for the development of law in the form of already accumulated legal values, the hereditary connections of the considered legal phenomena bring together the past, present, and future, bringing to life new generations of ready-made achievements in the field of law. This condition determines the dynamism of law, its development, exerts a beneficial influence on law-making and law-enforcement processes, as well as defines topical issues of national and international legal development.
