Academics

The curriculum of the School of International Law is shaped by a comprehensive pedagogical and methodological approach. In their courses, teaching staff employ the Socratic method, which engages students in rigorous dialogue and fosters a deeper understanding of course material. Beyond the classroom, students participate in Moot courts, compete in international competitions in international law and international arbitrage, and conduct project-based research. A final key feature of the School’s approach is the extensive use of English.

School faculty members teach all courses of the Public International Law cycle in the Bachelor's programmes of the Faculty of Law. As part of the 5-year Bachelor's programme 'Jurisprudence', our team is responsible for the implementation of the track 'International Law', which features English-taught courses in special legal disciplines, thereby allowing students to both hone their English language skills and gain critical legal expertise. At the Graduate School of the Faculty of Law, a team of the School teaches the course 'Current Issues of International Law'. The School’s lecturers also conduct International Law classes at the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs at the Higher School of Economics.

The School of International Law offers two Master's programs. 'International Trade, Finance and Economic Integration Law', led by Associate Professor Vladislav Starzhenetsky, is a fully English-taught programme, which, due to the involvement of the top researchers and teachers, has rapidly become one of the most successful and competitive Russian programmes in international law. In the fall of 2020, the School launched a new Master's programme, 'Compliance and Legal Risk Prevention in the Corporate, Public, and Non-Profit Sector'. This interdisciplinary and practice-oriented programme led by Professor Eduard Ivanov is a joint project of the Faculty of Law, the Pepeliaev Group, and the HSE Laboratory for Anti-Corruption Policy.

As part of the Postgraduate School, the School of International Law offers courses that contribute to the fulfillment of HSE’s International Law and International Procedure profiles.
