Associate Professor Tatiana Borisova successfully defended her PhD in Law

On December15 Associate Professor Tatiana Borisova successfully defended her PhD in Law 'The Emergence of the Legality Tradition in Russia, 1800-1918' at the University of Turku, Finland

The dissertation studies how the perception of law and legality in Russia developed in the eyes of those who created the law and made it function. It examines how law was facilitated via legal techniques by those who promoted the professionalization of law and legality in Russia. These techniques were: (a) the systematization of newly published law in the Digest of laws of the Russian empire and its continuation (Svod zakonov Rossisskoi imperii); and (b) obligatory publication of legislation. These legal techniques are considered as practices for making and reproducing a Russian legal tradition forming the basis of a specific identity of the Russian legal community which is being reproduced. 

The chapters of the dissertation are to answer the following questions: 
 1. how legislation was published, systematized and codified and distributed around the country; 
 2. why particular legal procedures for publication, systematization and codification were chosen;                                                                                    3. and finally and most importantly, what these procedures tell us about Russian legality in terms of its basic aims and values. 

The dissertation is in open access: https://www.doria.fi/handle/10024/129875

We congratulate Professor Borisova and wish her every success in her academic career!
