Institute of Law

For hundreds of years, professional lawyers have been in high demand in any society. The 20th century witnessed rapid development of science and technology, economy and society, so that new processes prompted the need in qualified lawyers. Following the urgent demand, the Institute of Law was opened at the university in 1998. Originally a small faculty, it has been developing at a quick pace. Obviously, it has the greatest potential. Nowadays, the institute comprises eight departments, Law College, several specialised laboratories and trains more than a thousand students.

Solid theoretical framework, narrow professional knowledge and unique practical skills – these are the hallmarks of legal training at the Institute of Law, enabling its graduates to occupy their niche in the professional world. While studying, young people become aware of the responsibility of their profession, i.e. upholding and enforcing law, fostering justice, and serving the public.

Both teaching staff and students of the institute are deeply engaged in research and practical activity. The conference schedule is tough, but students manage to combine studies and research with extra-curriculars – performances, cultural and sport events.

Since 2010, the institute houses the regional branch of the Association of Lawyers of Russia. Its members are professional Penza lawyers engaged in various legal spheres, both at the regional and national level. The Board of Young Lawyers is made up of law students and acts under the supervision of the Association of Lawyers of Russia. These unions contribute to boosting the quality of legal training and support, as well as to making the institute one of the most trusted law schools in the region.
