The Institute of Law is a principally new format of subdivision, within which all of the best scientific, academic, and student traditions of the SUSU legal departments and subdivisions are combined.
Training in the specialty “Jurisprudence” began at the University in 1993 at the faculty of “Economics and Entrepreneurship” (later renamed into the faculty of “Economics and Law”). On February 1st, 1993, for the first time in the University, in order to train specialists in the field of Jurisprudence, the Department of Civil and Criminal Law and Procedure was formed.
Gradually, the number of departments increased, more and more professionals were involved in the implementation of educational programs, the number of students increased, and on July 15, 2003, the Faculty of Economics and Law was separated from the Faculty of Law as an independent structural unit.
In 2011, the Faculty of Law enforcement training was launched. By the decision of the Academic Council of the South Ural State University, on October 1, 2011, the Faculty of Law and Finance was renamed the Faculty of Law Enforcement Training.
Within the framework of the “5-100” program, following the Strategy of the South Ural State University’s development, in order to create and apply scientific knowledge and train a new generation of lawyers, the Law Institute was created in 2016, combining the intellectual potential, research and training laboratories of all legal departments of SUSU . The universal training profiles of the Institute of Law are oriented at employers of the state-legal, civil, and criminal spheres.
