The uniqueness of tutoring at the faculty of Law that has its historical explanations is that alongside Russian legislation and law, other legislative systems of the world are widely presented. These are: Anglo-American and continental European, as well as the legislation of developing countries. International law is taught intensively.

Students of the faculty of Law take part in professional legal practices. While working at the Students’ Advisory Bureau at PFUR, students gain experience working with the public and local authorities. In addition, leading Russian lawyers regularly give master classes at the faculty of Law. The training program is aimed at providing special knowledge necessary for the future professional activity. By their 4th year of studies, most students have gained profound work experience.

The PFUR faculty of Law is one of the few in this country offering a Master’s degree in law. Law students participate in international exchange programs on a yearly basis. They undergo study courses at universities in France, Spain, Italy, the CzechRepublic, the USA, Finland, Austria, China and other countries.

After graduating from the University, law students go over to work at educational institutions, law-enforcement agencies, government and state administration agencies, internal and external agencies of foreign relations in Russia, the CIS countries and far abroad and at international organizations.
