The urgency of the problem stated in the article is due to the fact that the status of the subjects of the educational process has changed significantly throughout the history of Ukrainian statehood, reflecting the type of socio-economic organisation of society, a certain level of civilisation, its degree of humanisation and liberalisation. The purpose of the article is to analyse the various historical stages of formation and development of legal regulation of relations in the field of education in Ukraine. According to the purpose, the leading method of this study was historical, which was based on the study of the origin, formation and development of objects in chronological order and which allowed achieving an in-depth understanding of the legal regulation of relations in education. The article proposes the periodisation of legal regulation of relations in the field of education, concludes that the predominance of public or private law influence on education at different times depends on socio-economic and political conditions. Research materials and formulated conclusions can be used in research activities as a basis for further historical and legal research of relations in the field of education.
