Faculty of Law - Petro Mohyla Black Sea State University

Faculty of Law

Lecturers of the Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University have significant teaching experience, especially foreign language faculty, because foreign languages are studied in the volume of at least 1300 hours. Starting from the 3rd year, students of all faculties study a second foreign language (German, French, or Spanish). The University also has a group of students who successfully study the Chinese language. And two representatives of the United States Peace Corps have been working productively at the Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University for many years as well. The course “Criminalistics” is taught at the Faculty of Law. We have created the material-technical base, which includes the study of criminology (equipped with modern technical and forensic devices, which aids student study of the methodology of forensic examinations), a photo lab, forensic site and forensic devices, as well as instruments and tools to provide practical training in the highlighted discipline. The Senior lecturer of civil and criminal law and procedure, Konovalov, provides the technical and forensic support of the learning process. With the aim of deepening humanitarian and general philological training, the Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University curriculum operates in a series of disciplines. Our higher education institution assumes study of the sciences, such as ethics, aesthetics, rhetoric, and logic. Additionally, a modern specialist must now be fluent in the latest computer technology. Particularly, in the field of law, a modern specialist must be equipped to handle a large spread of electronic means of collecting and analyze relevant information gain popularity. Thus, the number of hours for the course “Fundamentals of Informatics and Computer Technology” increases 5 times in comparison with the educational requirements of the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine (268 hours against 54). All necessary conditions have been created for obtaining the specialty “Jurisprudence” at the BSNUPM. It is worth dwelling on the aspect of training future lawyers, as the ability to work with modern electronic equipment. Students also have access to a large library containing textbooks, books, and manuals, in Ukrainian, Russian, and English languages (10.000 copies). Fruitful work of the faculty would be impossible without the efforts of those who help students to find themselves in the chosen specialty and to develop their talents. We should also be grateful to the librarians of the reading room, who in addition to the issuance of the ordered literature, provide expert advice, conduct bibliographic reviews, and themed exhibitions. The Faculty has a legal clinic, photo lab and a classroom of forensics, computer classes, and a reading room of scientific and educational literature.
