Law Clinic



The experimental study laboratory Law Clinic was founded is the late 1990th by the initiative of Volodymyr Sushchenko, the Dean of the Department of Law of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy at that time. With an active support of the students of the Department this experiment started in 1999 and gained the official status of a consulting center on May 11th 2000. One of the first events held by the Clinic was a training session organized in cooperation with the Law Schools of England and Welles. This session played a big role in the Clinic’s foundation process.


Our Goals
