On April 13, 2021, the Faculty of Law of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation was admitted as an associate member of the European Law Faculties Association (ELFA).
The European Law Faculties Association (ELFA) was founded in 1995 in Leuven (Belgium) by more than 80 Faculties of Law located in different universities across Europe. The organisation today has more than 150 members from countries within Europe and beyond.
One of the Association’s mission is to represent and promote the interests of its members in the field of legal education and research vis-à-vis EU institutions, international organisations as well as associations of legal professionals.
Every year ELFA organises its annual conference at which members are encouraged to participate in its plenary, workshops and round tables dedicated to the popular trends in the legal sphere. To support researchers it organises its ELFA Award for the best Doctoral Thesis on European Law.
Dean of the Faculty of Law Prof. Gulnara Ruchkina stressed the importance of joining the Association for the future successful development of the Faculty.
The membership of the FinU Faculty of Law in international associations guarantees its successful development as a modern and prestigious higher educational institution, where one can obtain a competitive degree in Law. Studying and implementing the latest trends, we are open to dialogue and exchange of experience and information with our foreign colleagues
