This year's concert on the occasion of the lawyer's day took place at SNAU on October 5. The head of Sumy Regional State Administration Mykola Klochko came to greet students and teachers. He highly praised the Department of Law of Sumy NAU. "Not every person in higher education, not only in our region, but also in Ukraine, has such a powerful faculty of law" - the head of the region is convinced. Currently, in our country radical changes in the judicial system take place, it is updated, reformed, and right now graduate-lawyers have real chances to realize themselves in different spheres.
Svitlana Zapara, the Dean of the Department of Law, was presented with an honorary certificate of the head of the regional state administration and a valuable gift by the chairman of Sumy Regional State Administration for her diligent work, high professionalism, and a significant personal contribution to the development of legal education and science.
The first vice-rector Mykola Kurylo, addressing the audience in the hall, emphasized the significance of the recent events within the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine: the adoption of a new law on amendments to the Commercial and Civil Procedural Codes of Ukraine, Administrative Code and other legislative acts. Mykola Petrovych emphasised the conscientious, fruitful scientific and pedagogical activity of his colleagues, high professionalism and personal contribution to the training of highly skilled specialists, the introduction of modern teaching methods and on the occasion of the celebration of the professional holiday of the Lawyer's Day.
The Dean of the Department Svitlana Zapara spoke a lot of warm words to the faculty and students of the Faculty of Law. Teachers of the faculty are people who have not only theoretical training of the highest level, they are professional practitioners, have vast experience and are ready to share this experience on a regular basis with their students. In addition, the staff of the Department of Law is an association of people who are prepared not only to teach, but also to study. It is the quality that allowed them to study English in a relatively short period of time to a level that allows them not only to communicate, but also to teach, because it was at the Department of Law of SNAU this year that a new specialty "International Law" with English language instruction was opened. Other achievements of the faculty are also impressive: the opening of the professional journal "Private and Public Law", victories in the contest of young scientists' projects, student scientific competitions, and publications in the leading European scientific journals, etc.
