August 14, the first meeting of the Academic Council of the Master's program "Compliance and Prevention of Legal Risks in the Corporate, Government and Non-Profit Sector" took place.
“In a war, as they say, you need to get involved, and then we'll see how it all goes. We have a good start”. Paraphrasing the well-known statement of Napoleon, S.G. Pepelyaev, managing partner of a major Russian law firm and chairman of the Academic Council of the program, at the first meeting noted the high professionalism of the program organizers, including the head of the Laboratory for Anti-Corruption Policy and Co-Chair of the Council D. V. Krylova , as well as her deputies and members of the council S. V. Taut and S. A. Parkhomenko.
Thanks to the efforts of the LAP staff and the Faculty of Law, the innovative program “Compliance and Prevention of Legal Risks in the Corporate, Government and Non-Profit Sector” attracted a large number of students and practitioners. Out of more than 140 submitted applications, 20 strongest applicants were selected for budget places. An enrollment order is available on the admissions office website. At the moment, contracts are being concluded for paid education (10 places in total).
In the context of the discussion of the preliminary results of the admissions campaign, D. V. Krylova and 5 other members of the council drew attention to the popularity of the summer school LAP "Legal risks as a source of corruption risks and their prevention", which was closely related to the subject of the master's program. Thus, 39 students from 18 leading Russian universities, including the HSE, MGIMO, Moscow State University, and 9 largest regional universities, including Tomsk, Khabarovsk and Bashkir state universities, have successfully completed the school. Some of the students who completed their training at the summer school successfully entered the master's program "Compliance and prevention of legal risks in the corporate, government and non-profit sector."
The members of the Academic Council unanimously adopted the programs of academic disciplines that will be studied within the framework of the discussed master's degree. In addition, potential topical and applied topics, taking into account international practice, were noted, which should be emphasized in the educational process in the interests of students.
One of the issues on the agenda of the meeting concerned the format of work in connection with the existing conditions. In order to reduce the risks associated with the sanitary and epidemiological situation, and reduce transport costs for students and teachers, it was decided to expand the list of distance courses while maintaining the full-time format of work.
