The main objective of the Department is the development of scientific and methodical guidance to help students gain an in-depth understanding of issues relating to state and law, mechanisms for the movement and functioning of legal matters, the correlation of state, law and other areas of social activity, and basic areas of development in regards to modern legal institutions and systems.
The academic disciplines covered in the Department’s lectures form an introduction for mastering legal sciences, as well as provide a basic prerequisite to advanced legal thinking. Knowledge of political and legal doctrines, historical processes of state and legal development, the fundamentals of theoretical jurisprudence, and approaches to comparative analysis of legal institutions help to educate future specialists who will work as well-qualified jurists able to solve difficult and unique tasks.
