The authors proved the relevance of the issue of harmonisation of Ukrainian law with EU law, which determines the existence of an institution of borrowings in the field of civil and civil procedural law. The authors conducted a retrospective anal-ysis of legal discourse on legal transplantation, including in the field of civil legal protection. The process of convergence of civil and economic and legal positions in the European integration area on the basis of private law was investigated. The materials for the examination of the adaptation and implementation program and the case law were analysed. It is revealed that for Ukraine and other countries of the European continent, in the field of protection of civil rights and interests, the norms that have been enshrined in European regional international instruments are of particular importance. It is determined that not only transplantation of legal norms but also transplantation of legal concepts takes place in the sphere of pro-tection of civil rights and interests in the aspect of legal borrowing.

Keywords: Legal transplantation, EU legislation, Adaptation and implementation program, Effective system.
