Institute of Law

For hundreds of years professional lawyers have been in high demand in any society. The twentieth century witnessed rapid development of science and technology, economy and social sphere, new processes prompted the need in qualified lawyers. Following the urgent demand, the Institute of Law was opened at the University in 1998. Originally just a small faculty, it is developing at a quick pace and obviously has the greatest potential. It now comprises eight departments, the Law College, and several specialised laboratories and trains more than three thousands of students.

Solid theoretical framework, narrow professional knowledge and unique practical skills – these are the hallmarks of legal training at the faculty that allow its graduates to occupy their niche in the professional world. Among the job opportunities are judges, attorneys, civil servants, public notaries, law enforcement officials, business lawyers. While studying, the young people are already aware of the responsibility of their profession – to uphold and enforce the law.

Both the academics and the students of the institute are deeply engaged in theoretical and research work. The conference schedule is tough, but the students manage to combine studies and research work 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 at the national level. The Board of Young Lawyers is made up of students of law and acts under the supervision of the Association of Lawyers of Russia. These unions help to boost the quality of legal training and support and make the Institute of Law at the university one of the most trusted law schools in the region.
