The ‘International Law’ track aims to produce broadly trained international lawyers. Knowledge and skills in the most sought-after areas of the legal services market, combined with specialized language training, will enable graduates of the track after completing their Bachelor’s degree program to get a job in law firms or in the civil service, as well as to enter specialized Master’s programs in International law both in Russia and abroad
The inclusion of the English-language track ‘International Law’ to the undergraduate curriculum is a response to the processes of globalization and internationalization, which happen beyond the division into branches of law and levels of legal regulation. International economic relations, including investment protection and regulation of international finance, as well as contemporary integration processes, problems and challenges of post-industrial society, and human rights are studied in the international track through the prism of interaction of global, regional and national levels of legal regulation. Graduates of the track will not only know the provisions of international treaties and customs, as well as navigate through key judicial and arbitral decisions and approaches presented in scholarship, but will also acquire important skills in legal writing, drafting procedural documents and presenting legal positions in courts and tribunals, gain competences of teamwork and time management.
The ‘International Law’ track is designed to combine enhanced language training with teaching of specialized legal disciplines in English. The curriculum includes English at an advanced level. In addition, the students on the track will be recommended to take academic exchange programs at one of the foreign partner universities. A methodological peculiarity of the track is a close connection with practice and the intertwining of preparation for various international and Russian competitions in International Law into the educational process. For this purpose, the track provides a special training workshop ‘Litigation in International Courts and Dispute Settlement Bodies’ and a course ‘International Arbitration’.
It is planned to enroll students in one group (30 persons) on the basis of a portfolio contest (English language skills, rating, achievements, motivation, etc.).
