About the profession

A criminal lawyer is a legal expert, hired on a client’s request rather than a person required to attend a trial. As, according to the legislation of the Russian Federation, every citizen of the country has the right to do his own defense in court. Criminal defense attorney is not just a lawyer, but a specialist with extensive knowledge of the law and outstanding experience in safeguarding their client’s constitutional rights in any criminal case. Therefore, the main advantage of hiring a professional is the outstanding skills of the latter, which considerably raise the chances of acquittal by the court.

Educational process

RUDN University's Institute of Law postgraduate program is implemented in compliance with the general strategy of RUDN University as an internationally oriented research university, closely cooperating with universities abroad. A postgraduate academic mobility program is quickly developing, as well as the postgraduate exchange programs with universities abroad (European countries and China).

The profound knowledge and analytical skills needed in the sphere of criminal law, gained during the postgraduate course, enable our alumni to realize them working in government entities, including the federal ones; as well as to continue scientific and educational activities both at Russian and foreign universities.

Disciplines

Postgraduates study such disciplines as: criminal procedure, criminal procedure in European countries, correlation between criminal procedure and criminalistics, problems and prospects of criminal procedure in the Russian Federation

Practical training

Practical training is a mandatory component of the post-graduate curriculum. It consists of such practical activities of post-graduates as teaching certain subjects, class activity management, scientific and methodical work on a subject, acquisition of necessary teaching skills. The aim of teaching practicum is the study of basics of pedagogical, educational and methodical work at the institutions of higher education; mastering teaching skills in conducting classes on various subjects from the specialization curriculum. The main objective of teaching practicum is to show the results of comprehensive psychological, pedagogical, socio-economic and IT readiness of a post-graduate for teaching activities. Besides, post-graduates have access to fieldwork in government agencies, Russian and international companies.

Career

Our alumni are in great demand in the labour market. There is an extensive range of options: the State Duma, the Federation Council, the Security Council, Ministry of Internal Affairs to name just a few, and of course there are always people who dedicate themselves to serving 'Her Majesty the Science' rather than doing practical activity. The fact that practically all staff professors – Doctors of Law - used to be postgraduates of the Department proves this.
