The National University “Odesa Law Academy” held an Open Day - Admission fair on February 29, 2020.

On this day young people were able to:

- find out about directions and specialties of the university;

- get acquainted with the deans of each faculty in person and to get answers to the questions of interest;

In addition, every student and their parents have the opportunity to stroll through the walls of the National University "Odessa Law Academy", visit the Museum of Rare Books, Shooting Range, check theirselves with the help of a polygraph and more!

On June 2, Law Faculties of the Belarusian State University and Yanka Kupala State University of Hrodna held a working online meeting of Belarusian CRIMHUM project participants. The Corona crisis cannot stop activities and students should receive their skills from the 1st September 2020.

Colleagues discussed the achieved milestones within the project, the preparation of an interim report on the project.

Participants also set tasks for the summer months (especially in course-books drafting). As you know, educators like to use vacations to work creatively ;)

The meeting was moderated by Project Quality Manager Dr. Vadzim Samaryn and Regional Project Manager (BY/UA) Dr. Aleh Maroz.

At the suggestion of the Regional Project Manager (BY/UA) Dr. Aleh Maroz and Project Quality Manager Vadzim Samaryn, a working online meeting was held also with Ukrainian CRIMHUM project participants on the same day.

Colleagues with the participation of the Project manager for Ukraine Dr. Vasyl Lutsyk, discussed the milestones reached within the project in Ukraine. The tasks related to the preparation of the interim report were distributed.

Heads of authors groups spoke about work on course books. Sufficient progress has been made in the development of teaching materials.

Dissemination plans were discussed, Ukrainian colleagues prepared articles on the implementation of the project for publication in professional journals.

The absence of significant obstacles to the introduction of a modernized master's program in all three Ukrainian universities (Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University, National University "Odesa Law Academy") since September 1, 2020 has been established. The presence of formal obstacles to the approval of curricula at individual universities due to COVID-19 quarantine was revealed.

Particularly discussed issues of financial management. The participants set tasks for the summer months to "prepare the sled from the summer" ;)

So, the new CRIMHUM Master programme will be implemented from autumn 2020 at all participating Partner Countries' universities!
