National University Odesa Law Academy

Today, the National University “Odesa Academy of Law” is one of the centers of legal education and science in Ukraine being a leading higher educational institution in the sphere of law.

The Odesa Academy of Law is the successor to the rich traditions of Odessa school of law, the history of which is enrooted back to the year of 1847 (the time of the foundation of the law faculty of the Richelieu lyceum – the first higher educational institution in Odessa). In 1865, the law faculty became part of the Imperial Novorossiysk University. In 1997, the year which marked 150 years of legal science and education in Odessa, the Law Institute of Odessa State University was transformed into Odessa State Academy of Law. And one year later, the university acquired membership at European University Association; in 2000, the Academy was granted the status of a national higher educational institution.

Since the very first days of our university’s life we have attempted to create a democratic university, which would be national in form, spirit and essence. For this purpose we kept on improving the quality of education applying modern technologies for the academic process organization using positive, innovative experience of leading foreign universities; we have also modernized material base and logistics. We have worked indefatigably to enable our university to get world recognition and high reputation becoming the leader of modern education in Ukraine.

Presently, the university is a symbol of tradition, standard of today and prospect for the future. A real temple of science has been created, which can boast of centuries-long educational and cultural traditions as well as contemporary scientific and educational inventions.
