Beyond University Education in Law: Innovative Practices and Trends

Congress Centre, conference hall B4
International Youth Legal Forum
Law is a popular choice of degree course among students. Even so, there remains a high level of demand in the market for professional legal services. There is a growing need for high-quality education to be provided within Russia, given the difficulties in travelling abroad to study. Many intellectual processes are undergoing a process of robotization. This means that lawyers who do not possess the skills required by employers will find themselves less in demand on the labour market. As far as training is concerned, young people are becoming less interested in traditional methods of study, and are turning to more modern approaches, such as gamification. However, educational programmes at universities currently only offer one main form of interaction between the institution itself, students, and employers. This focuses on various forms of placements and internships. In turn, any practical experience gained by students happens in isolation from the education process, and is often perfunctory in nature. What alternative forms of cooperation exist today? What can be done to encourage students to play an active role in these initiatives?
