Duty of lecturers

Department which includes all criminal law subjects was founded in 1969. In 1982 Criminal Procedure and Criminalistics were excluded from the Department, and it became the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology. In 2007 the Department was finally divided into the Department of Tort law and Criminology and the Department of Criminal Law.

From 1969 to 1981 the Department Chairman was assistant professor Y. Kardopolov, Candidate of Law.

From 1981 to 2007 the Chairman was Professor, Gorelik A. S., Doctor of Law, Honored Lawyer of Russia.

From October 2007 Professor Tarbagaev A. N., Doctor of Law has been the Department Chairman.

For several years, the main goal of the Department was to create research and educational personnel. So, cleverest students who finished correspondence course (and since 1974 – full-time course) were invited to teach as the assistants. After 2 or 3 years they were directed to target postgraduate study in big scientific and pedagogical centers in Moscow, Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg), Tomsk Universities, Sverdlovsk Law Institute (now - Ural State Academy of Law). After finishing postgraduate study (usually with defense of a dissertation) they returned to the Department. Other young specialists were directed to the targer postgraduate study and so on. The next stage was to make qualification higher by preparing Doctors dissertations, including organization of vacations and appointing them as Senior Scientists.

Nowadays, there are 15 lecturers in the Department. They are

  • Three Doctors of Law, Professors: Tarbagaev A. N. (Department’s Chairman), Shishko I. V. (the Director of the Law Institute of SFU), Uss A. V. (Chairman of the Legislative Assembly of Krasnoyarsk Krai, part-time lecturer);
  • Two Candidates of Law, Professors: Pitetzkiy Valeriy V., G. N. Hlupina;
  • Five Candidates of Law, Assistant professors: Bushmin S. I., Dolgolenko T. V., Mitzkevich A. F., Sevastyanov A. P., Truhin A. M., Pitetzkiy V.V.;
  • Three Senior Lecturers: Mironchik A.S., Candidate of Law, Kachina N. V., Candidate of Law, Verbickaja N.A., Candidate of Law.

So, the Department is composed of highly qualified research and educational personnel. The Department of Criminal Law provides the Institute with such subjects as Criminal Law of Russia (General and Special Parts) and some special courses like General Theory of qualifying crimes, Criminal responsibility and punishment, International Criminal Law, Crimes against the Person, White Collar Crime, and etc.

The Department conducts a large research work on the topic of “Criminal legal problems of combating crimes”. From 2003 to 2007 professors of the Department published 105 articles in scientific journals including one published abroad (in Germany), twenty – in leading peer-reviewed Publishing Houses in Russia, approved by the Higher Attestation Committee of Russian Federation (Criminal Law, State and Law, Legality, Russian Justice, Herald of the Russian Legal Academy of the Ministry of Justice in Russia). During the same period professors published three monographs (all in the Saint Petersburg Publishing House “Legal Center – Press”), six books and educational supplies.

Every year (from 1997 to 2007) the Department organized seminars for Council of Europe on different questions of combating organized crime and corruption. Experts of Council of Europe – Professors of Western European universities and practitioners from Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Sweden, and Switzerland – participated in such seminars.  Lecturers of the Department also take active part in scientific conferences, held by Moscow State University and Moscow State Academy of Law.
