Economic and legal disciplines, new innovative courses, fundamental law disciplines and narrowly specialized courses are all equally important for the Faculty of Law. The Faculty's strength is the curriculum's focus on the practical, which perpares its graduates to successfully meet the demands of the labour market.

Course description: Contract drafting is an essential skill for a modern lawyer. Not all branches of law require lawyers to master it, but regardless one’s profession and interests contracts understanding is a necessary capability to work, rest, run a business, bringing up children, and ultimately live a successful life.
In this context, employment contract is a type of contracts almost everybody signs either on employer’s or an employee’s side. However, employment law is a very specific branch of law that has developed many peculiar concepts, special interpretations, unique approaches, unusual institutions and stakeholders. It also intersects with many other branches of law, requiring an employment lawyer be aware of many related issues.
Employment law is also widely regulated on international and regional level, imposing on lawyers a requirement to know, monitor and apply not only national laws, but international treaties and regulations as well.
This short course allows students to grasp reflection of the ideas of employment contract drafting for both foreign (national and multinational) and international employers. It drifts from contract drafting basics to specific issues and cases, allowing students to grasp the most important aspects of this field.
The course aimed at making students master the skill of employment contract drafting and interpretation when working with a foreign or international employer.
