Professor Thornhill (University of Manchester) delivered an open lecture at Law institute

November 29, 2018 the head of the Law School of the University of Manchester, prof. Christopher Thornhill and Dr. Maria Smirnova, researcher at the University of Manchester visited RUDN University.

Professor Thornhill delivered an open lecture on "Litigation, political transformation and the role of international law: a comparative approach." Professor Thornhill, together with Maria Smirnova, are conducting research on the topic “Litigation and political transformation: the case of Russia”, which formed the basis of this lecture.

The discussion was attended by teachers, graduate students and students of the Department of International Law of the RUDN University. This is the third meeting with Christopher Thornhill, held at RUDN. Earlier, the professor came in December 2015 with a public lecture on the Relationship of Constitutional Law of Russia and International Law, and also spoke in 2016 with a welcoming speech on plenary session and at the round table in framework of XIV Blischenko Congress. Like last time, the professor's presentation caused a lively discussion: the representatives of the states of Central Asia asked the opinion of prof. Thornhill on the prospects for the development of judicial systems in their states. There were also questions about the role of non-governmental organizations in the development of legal proceedings, the prospects for research in the development of the judicial process in unrecognized states (Transnistria, Abkhazia, Palestine, etc.), specialization of legal proceedings and the allocation of individual courts (juvenile justice, administrative courts, environmental courts).
