Main results give general conditions under which this space is uniformly convex. The Clarkson theorem on the uniform convexity of $L^{p}$space is generalized. Under some specific assumptions imposed on $\varphi$ we give not only a proof of the uniform convexity but also show the formula of a modulus of convexity. We establish the uniform convexity of all finitedimensional paranormed spaces, generated by a strictly convex bijection $\varphi$ of $[0, \infty)$. However, the {\it a contrario} proof of this fact provides no information on a modulus of convexity of these spaces. In some cases it can be done, even an exact formula of a modulus can be proved. We show how to make it in the case when $S={\mathbb R}^2$ and $\varphi$ is given by $\varphi(t)={\rm e}^t1$. Keywords: Lplike paranorm, paranormed space, uniformly convex paranormed space, modulus of convexity, convex function, geometrically convex function, superquadratic function.
