Nottingham Law School develops International legal education with Armenian partnership
Nottingham Law School has formed a partnership with Armenia’s Yerevan State University (YSU) to enable the two institutions to work closely together on legal education matters.
A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed to mark the beginning of the partnership between Nottingham Law School at Nottingham Trent University and the faculty of law at YSU.
Dean of Nottingham Law School, Professor Janine Griffiths-Baker, who visited YSU to sign the MOU, explains, “This memorandum is just the beginning of our journey together and we’ve already had some useful conversations about how we can work together. NTU is a global university and through this partnership we aim to give staff and students at both institutions a valuable international experience.”
Dean of the Faculty of Law of YSU, Gagik Ghazinyan, adds, “The idea for this collaboration took root due to the educational program Nottingham Law School is carrying out with the School of Advocates of the Republic of Armenia. We decided to strengthen ties through a direct relationship, making it possible for the Faculty of Law of YSU to become one of the best scientific and education centres not only in Armenia, but in the whole region.”
Potential joint projects between NTU and YSU include research collaborations, faculty and student exchange visits, joint conferences, and the development of joint degree and PhD programs. The two universities are also planning to consult on curriculum development, bringing in current areas of focus in Armenia such as anti-corruption and human rights.
