Regulation of Federal and Municipal Management
Management skills have been and always will be in high demand, as long as human beings have administrative needs. The ability to competently manage resources and balance multiple projects, deadlines and human needs in the context of the modern world — these are skills as necessary for the beginner as they are for industry leaders. The ability to understand economics, law and the interaction between them is a core aspect of our program, as are as human resources and many other fascinating disciplines.
International Law, European Law, International Legal Procedure
Globalization requires an understanding of international relations and their creation, the interaction between varied legal orders and the functioning of the global marketplace. Being either in favor of or against such integration requires a deep comprehension of it, an ability to analyze its processes and their consequences and proposing functional solutions. In addition, this discipline — studying the varied national and international solutions to common human problems and applying them in the Russian context — is simply one of the most interesting and challenging available.
Civil Law, Family Law, International Private Law
Private law is such an integral part of our lives that we almost never notice that our daily interactions with our children, parents and even homes are all shaped by an overarching legal framework. One of the most challenging and creative branches of law deals with crafting solutions to practical human problems and working with the Supreme and Constitutional Courts of the Russian Federation, as well as municipal and arbitration courts. International law also takes on a special significance in this sphere as cultural and economic integration increasingly impacts the lives of real people and businesses.
Economic activity cannot exist without its legal framework, which maps and explains the rules of the road. Moreover, the work of all three branches of government directly influence the economy and are in great need of lawyers who understand the discipline in all its nuances — shaping economic regulation, ensuring its appropriate application both during its normal course and in the courts.
You will graduate with an in depth, multidisciplinary understanding — and a love of learning itself!
