The Faculty of Law was one of the first faculties created in the Higher School of Economics. 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.
Level of study: Bachelor
Nowadays only very few lawyers in the market can really provide advanced level assistance to companies launching projects based on innovative technologies. The high cost of consulting services creates barriers for small innovative projects to enter the market. Besides, there are not enough sufficient ways to ensure the reliability of the solutions offered by practitioners, which is caused by the lack of experience in regulating innovative relations. For this reason, the formation of a deep and comprehensive culture of expertise in the field of law and innovation is impossible without an understanding of economic, legal, and political processes, behavioral aspects of law, as well as basic training in data analysis.
The course is aimed at creating a new information environment for training professionals focused on creating conceptually new legal rights for the future. In particular, such professionals should:
- be well aware of the established regulation on capital markets, in particular the activities of commercial banks, credit rating agencies, organizational and ideological aspects of the deposit insurance system, etc.
- be ready to face new technologies like blockchain on a daily basis,
- have a clear understanding of the instruments of both Russian federal law, EU law, US federal law and international organizations' legal acts relating to the regulation of capital markets, such as the WTO, the World Bank, international payment systems standards, etc.,
- understand the mechanism of the digital economy, including the costs of mastering new technologies by business, the order of interaction between business and the state when introducing innovations in entrepreneurial activity,
- be ready to operate with both conventional (western) and Islamic financial instruments,
- have a basic level of competence in data analysis, in particular: mathematical statistics,
- discover ways in which theory and practice overlap for the benefit of business, the national economy, each individual, and humanity as a whole,
- learn relevant professional terminology in Russian and English, as well as academic writing standards
Throughout the course, we will create and develop students' knowledge and skills. At the same time, we take into account the need to develop both academic and practical skills on a balanced basis for students. In this way, in the future they could choose between academic and practical careers in the field of law, and perhaps even combine them.
