Private legal enforcement in civil protective legal relations

The diversity of points of view regarding admissibility, sphere, conditions and procedure for the use of private legal enforcement distinguishes this topic among others and contributes to its relevance. The main purpose of the work is to analyze the unlawful enforcement in civil protective relations. Using theoretical methods, the authors established that legal enforcement is divided into state and non-state (private). Criminal actions pose a greater threat to the subject, compared to unlawful actions. It has been established that private enforcement dominates over the state one. Although one of the main drawbacks is the increase of self- governance. It has also been established that private legal enforcement is similar to self-defense from a position of the person’s reaction to an unlawful conduct in relation to themselves or other persons. As a result, self-defense is part of private enforcement in civil legal relations, but it is impossible to equate enforcement to self-defense
