The School of Law has four Departments: Theory and History of Law and the State, Constitutional and Administrative Law, Civil Law and Procedure, and Financial Law. The School also houses a Laboratory for Comparative Legal Studies, which is a research unit of HSE St. Petersburg.
The School of Law trains general practice lawyers and offers students the opportunity to acquire both in-depth subject knowledge and independent learning skills.
In addition to basic courses on the Theory of the State and Law, Constitutional Law, Civil Law, and Criminal Law, among others, the curriculum includes specialized courses in Banking Law, Business Law, Corporate Law, Tax Law, etc. The School offers interdisciplinary legal and economics courses, such as International Economic Law, International Financial Law, Investment Law, Legal Regulation of the Securities Market, and International Commercial Arbitration.
Strong emphasis is placed on foreign language instruction. In addition to English, students may take optional German and French language classes. Groups of six or more students may request a foreign language course in another language, such as Spanish or Italian. Foreign language classes are designed to train students to communicate fluently on professional topics.
The School accommodates numerous study circles (in civil, financial, criminal, and international law, constitutional justice, etc.). Study circle meetings are scheduled on certain days of the week for convenience; students wishing to attend can find scheduled dates on the School’s website. Students also benefit from academic seminars and conferences.
As part of their studies, law students undertake practical training with relevant federal agencies, such as the Commercial (Arbitration) Court of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, the Federal Tax Service in St. Petersburg, and others.
Graduates of the HSE St Petersburg School of Law go on to work in various legislative, judicial, and executive agencies, local government, as well as corporations and non-profit organizations.
