Level of study: Bachelor

The purpose of special course “Introduction to English and American Law” (in English) is to introduce the origins of English and American law, its sources and foundations, the basics of constitutional systems of Great Britain and the USA, American federalism, legal education and legal practice, legal culture of the Americans and the British (in comparison with other countries, including Russia), legal and political implications of British membership in the European Union, other topical issues of contemporary English and American law.

As an introduction to this special course students will explore English and American methodology of comparative legal studies. They will also study how to do research of English and American law.

Particular topics of the course include: U.S. Constitution and (unwritten) Constitution of the United Kingdom; separation of powers in Great Britain and USA; civil rights and freedoms; main decisions of the US Supreme Court; political parties and electoral systems; impeachment; death penalty; foundations of criminal law, foreign relations law, national security law; peculiarities of application of international law in Great Britain and USA; legal education in Great Britain and USA, and how to pass Law School Admission Test (LSAT), etc.

In order to make the course more interactive, all students will be divided into two groups (not more than 20 students in each group) with more or less advanced knowledge of English.

We will consider a possibility of visiting Moscow offices of major international law firms; bringing practicing lawyers to the classroom as guest speakers; discussing English, American, Russian and comparative law with English and American students via Skype; observing sessions and hearings in the British Parliament and U.S. Congress via the Internet; holding a moot court, mock parliamentary sessions, etc.
