Onishchenko N. . The effectiveness and quality of legislation is the focus of the reconstruction of Ukraine

Introduction: It is an axiomatic position that high-quality and effective legislation is needed at all stages of our lives: from working conditions to leisure conditions; economic factors; social programs; modern education and in many other areas in the context of human life. However, even in doctrinal sources today it is not so easy to find the essential provisions, criteria, filling the category of quality of legislation. It should be noted at once that many researchers of the doctrine identify the categories of effectiveness and quality of legislation. Although, on closer inspection it becomes clear that these are close but not identical phenomena of social reality.

Purpose of the article: the purpose of this article is to emphasize the mutual compliance and consistency of the categories of efficiency and quality of legislation. Substantiation of the fact that the legislation is effective at a certain stage of human life. It may not reproduce all the features and characteristics of the category of quality legislation. The above is confirmed by the illustration on the optimization of the legislative activity of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
