Abstract

The article analyzes the legislation and practice of its application concerning the need to improve the culture of social relations
in the field of intellectual property, taking into account the need to improve the legal protection of intellectual property in Ukraine. This
will foster optimizing the conditions for creative intellectual activities of engineers, inventors, scientists, for the development of a civilized
market for the results of their activities, for the commercialization of a wide range of objects of intellectual property, for effective
and honest business operations and so forth. The issue of the need to codify the current regulatory framework, which affects the regulation
of relations in intellectual property law, is analyzed.
The article focuses on the high level of piracy and large-scale infringements of intellectual property rights in Ukraine. The lack
of citizens’ readiness to respect intellectual property law, the contempt for the protection of the results of intellectual work, and the
weakness of the mechanisms of protection and defense of the results of intellectual creativity are emphasized. The reason for violations
in the field of intellectual property is defined as the low level of general culture of the citizens of Ukraine and the low level of education
in the field of intellectual property. The need to overcome the contradictions existing today in the process of training future lawyers is substantiated, as well as the search for a systematic basis for creating and implementing the model of training students for future professional
activities is proposed. It is proved that such model should be aimed at training legal professionals who can perceive law as a
force designed to protect the rights and freedoms of citizens, which meets the requirements of universal morality, equality and justice
in society. Emphasis is placed on the fact that law as a social phenomenon together with other social factors forms the ideals and limits
of the freedom.
The article proposes to develop and implement a structured program for the implementation of intellectual property management
strategy in Ukraine. Given that there are different techniques for managing such projects, and they all include common features, the re -
levant government agencies and institutions in the field of intellectual property should choose and implement the methodology that best
suits the real situation and is the most effective.
