communicative competence, forms, formation, future lawyer, methods, Ukrainian language.


The article analyzes the essence of the notion of «communicative competence of the future lawyer», which is interpreted as an integral personal formation having a complex structure (a set of knowledge, skills and abilities, value systems, awareness of ethical, deontological norms and rules of communicative interaction, readiness for communication, etc.) each component of which plays the role of guidance when structuring the content of professional training of a student-lawyer in a higher education institution. The peculiarities of the formation of communicative competence during the study of the discipline «Ukrainian language for professional purposes» are revealed. In particular, the purpose and tasks of the course are formulated, the forms and methods of work aimed at the formation of the indicated competence are characterized. It is stressed that due to the insufficient amount of time spent on practical classes, the latter should be developed on the basis of an appropriate combination of language and speech (communicative) exercises, the use of such forms and methods of work as dispute, discussion, debate, writing of creative works on topics related to the future profession of a student / cadet, preparation of project works, etc. Audio and video recording of the conducted activities aimed at the analysis and self-analysis of the quality of speech by students / cadets will be useful. It was emphasized that in the classes on the Ukrainian language for professional purposes students should be taught to use functional styles of the Ukrainian language, such as official-business (to conclude the main types of business documents), publicistic (to build a speech according to the purpose and peculiarities of the audience, observing the rules of professional ethics), scientific (to prepare a scientific report, conference theses, an article), apply tasks for mastering extra-linguistic and non-verbal means of communication
