About the Faculty

History

The Faculty of Law was created in 1997 and soon became a leader in its field. Since its founding more than 20 years ago, the faculty has established a classical system of legal education and integrated itself into the global research community.

Since 2012, the Faculty has offered programmes in law at both the undergraduate and Master's levels.

Combining common university traditions with the latest trends in Russian and international education, the Faculty of Law provides qualitative training of undergraduate and Master’s students and employs high-tech innovations.

Leading scholars

The Dean of the HSE Faculty of Law is Evgeny Salygin, Honoured Lawyer of the Russian Federation, Candidate of Sciences in Law, and Associate Professor.

The faculty includes eight of its own departments and two joint departments. It also includes research units, such as the Institute of Legal Research, which is headed by Professor Yuriy Tikhomirov; the Laboratory of Theoretical Studies of Law and State, which is led by Vladimir Chetvernin; and the Laboratory for Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law, which is headed by Irina Bogdanovskaya, as well as the Center for Comparative Law and the Institute of Legal Regulation.

The teachers in the faculty include distinguished tenured professors, honoured scientists, honoured lawyers, and leading practitioners who have held key legal positions. The Faculty of Law employs more than 50 doctors of science, the majority of whom teach at the Faculty full time. The Academic Supervisor of the Faculty of Law is Anton Ivanov, Retired Chairman of Russia's Supreme Arbitration Court.

Areas of study

The undergraduate programme in Legal Studies offers 117 state-funded places,100 fee-paying places and 20 paid places for non-citizens; the undergraduate programme in Private Law offers 25 state-funded places, 30 fee-paying places and 5 paid places for non-citizens.

Among 11 Master’s programmes, the most popular are 'Corporate Lawyer', ‘Private International Law’, 'Intellectual Property and IT Law', ‘Public Law’, ‘Lawyer in Justice and Law Enforcement’, ‘Sports Lawyer’, ’History, theory and philosophy of law’. You can find the entire list of the programmes on the Faculty of Law website in the section ‘Master’s programmes’.

Every Master's programme offers 20 state-funded places, 10-15 paid places (the number varies depending on the programme) and 2-5 paid places for non-citizens. This year's innovation is the Master’s programme ‘Civil and Criminal Defense Lawyer’. Students will be trained as defense lawyers in various categories of criminal law with an emphasis on economic crimes.

Achievements

The Faculty of Law prides itself on its practice-based approach. This approach, which serves as a basis for teaching, ensures the formation of practical skills as well as the study of professional subjects. Its active international contacts enable students to participate in international internships and apply for international grants.
