The Institute of Law is one of the largest educational divisions of the Bashkir State University.
It was established in 1949 as the Ufa branch of the All-Union Correspondence Law Institute.
The history of the Institute of Law began back in 1949 — on October 9, the decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR was signed on the establishment of the Ufa branch of the All-Union Correspondence Law Institute from January 1, 1950. The branch occupied several rooms in the premises of the Supreme Court of the Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic.
In 1964, the branch was transformed into the Ufa Faculty of the Sverdlovsk Law Institute, and only in January 1972, the faculty, whose teaching staff consisted of 37 people (24 of them had academic degrees), became part of the Bashkir State University. This was a significant new step in expanding the network of legal education in the republic as a whole.
In 1999, the Faculty of Law was transformed into the Institute of Law of the Bashkir State University. Currently, it is a major scientific, educational and intellectual center of the Republic of Bashkortostan, which trains highly qualified lawyers on full-time and part-time courses.
During the existence of the faculty, its scientists have published dozens of monographs, textbooks, and hundreds of scientific articles. Every year, our teachers and students participate in conferences and symposiums held both in Russia and abroad, take part in legislative activities at the federal and national levels, and act as experts on newly adopted regulations.
Speaking about the history of our institute and legal education in the republic as a whole, it is impossible not to mention those who stood at its origins and played a major role in their formation. These are professors L. L. Kanevsky, F. M. Rayanov, M. S. Ordansky, V. A. Banin, F. G. Gilyazev, V. D. Pakutin, F. Z. Kulbarisov, M. F. Malikov, L. S. Samsonova, L. Ya.Pavlenko and many others.
Bashkir State University has always been famous for its talents in various fields, and each new generation of students and teachers leaves an indelible mark on its history, which will undoubtedly have a bright continuation.
The Institute of Law is one of the largest educational divisions of the Bashkir State University. Established in 1949 as the Ufa branch of the All-Union Legal Correspondence Institute (now the Kutafin Moscow State Academy), it has gone a long way in its formation and development and today is the flagship of legal education in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
The Institute of Law has accumulated extensive experience in educational and research work. The faculty that has developed over the years of the Institute of Law, including doctors and candidates of science, founders of scientific law schools, successful practitioners: judges, lawyers, lawyers of commercial companies and human rights organizations, allows us to provide the necessary level of training of highly qualified specialists for state bodies, commercial enterprises, law enforcement agencies, the bar, public organizations, etc. Leading experts from the state authorities of the republic, well-known scientists from other educational institutions of the country are invited to give lectures and conduct classes with students.
Confirmation of the high level of legal education is the successful passing of the Institute of public accreditation of the Association of Lawyers of Russia and state accreditation.
