The Department’s research activities are carried out within the framework of two main scientific schools: business law and private international law. The scientific school of business law is represented by Ordinary professor O.M. Oleynik, who is a major specialist in the field of corporate rule-making, building a corporate governance system, as well as state regulation of the financial market, including the legal status of a financial mega-regulator. Employees of the Department specializing in corporate and business law are engaged in extensive research in the field of legal liability of corporate entities, including the grounds for liability of the controlling person of an economic entity, civil liability of members of management bodies of companies, and responsibility of the head of a legal entity for misconduct. The results of scientific research are discussed by colleagues at scientific and practical seminars with the invitation of academics from Russian and foreign universities, as well as practicing lawyers of Russian companies in the field of corporate practice. Students who write their research papers in the field of business law, under the guidance of teachers of the Department, participate in model competitions (for example, in the V.P. Mozolin competition on corporate law), achieving high results. The scientific school of private international law is represented by Ordinary professor N.Yu. Erpyleva, who is a well-known specialist in the field of conflict of laws, international commercial law and international procedural law. Within the Department, there is a Research and training group “Modern construction of private international law”, the main purpose of which is to study international and national acts on private international law. The results of the work of the Group for almost seven years have allowed to introduce into the scientific circulation in Russia many documents that are not available to a wide range of people interested in PIL. Students who have chosen the PIL as their field of research are constantly participating in international model competitions (for example, Willem Vis Moot, PaxMoot, FIAMC, FDI Competitions, etc.) and show the highest level of training, largely due to integration into the research activities of the Department. Teachers of the Department who specialize in PIL regularly participate in Russian and international scientific conferences, symposia and seminars, and maintain close contacts with researchers from foreign universities (for example, the Department of private international law, the University of Paris-1 Pantheon Sorbonne).
