School of Polish and European Law

 The School of Polish and European Law is a joint Polish-Ukrainian project, the basis of which is the Cooperation Agreement between West Ukrainian National University and Jagiellonian University (Krakow, Poland). This agreement provides for the functioning of the School, as well as the participation of the Universities in the organization of joint scientific conferences and seminars with the participation of teachers and students of both educational institutions; preparation of joint scientific publications; exchange of teachers, graduate students and students from both universities; realization of joint research projects involving teachers, researchers and students of both educational establishments.

The Polish and European Law School is an annual program. The school year in the School starts as a rule in October, during the course of September, a set of listeners continues. Students wishing to take part in this program are invited to fill out a special application form. With the help of questionnaires, free time is determined, during which students can attend the classes provided by the program of the School of Polish and European Law. According to the processed personal information, student groups and classes are formed. Students of the Schools are beginning to study the Polish legal language (terminology). Classes take place at a time free from the main schedule of the university. It should be noted that the School of Polish and European Law is very popular among students. Every year about 150 people apply for participation in it. Upon completion of the language course, the students-students pass the exam, the results of which are allowed to the next stage - legal and economic, which lasts from February to May each year. After each lecture course, students are tested. As a rule these courses are 8-10 for one academic year. Every year the School program is supplemented with new relevant subjects. Among the thematic courses are the following: public European law, economic European law, competition law of the European Union, constitutional law, civil law (right of obligation, substantive law, tort law, legal right, consumer right), civil process, public and private economic law (the right of business associations), intellectual property law, banking law, economic analysis of law.
The classes are conducted by teachers from the Law and Administration Department of Jagiellonian University, practicing notaries and lawyers, lawyers of the National Depository of Securities and the Stock Exchange, the Commission for the Integration of Poland to the European Union, human rights activists from the Helsinki Foundation (Warsaw), as well as specially invited teachers and practitioners from Germany, Luxembourg, USA.

After the thematic lecture courses and holding a general oral examination from all courses, the rating of the students' progression is formed - students of the Polish and European Law School, which takes into account the result for the language test, the total score obtained on the test results and the examination for the exam. On the basis of a definite individual rating of each Student-student of the School, a general rating is made. Scholarships are awarded every year by the Polish side, usually from 6 to 15 month scholarships, as well as possible annual scholarships. Students with the highest rating score receive an annual scholarship at Jagiellonian University or a month-long internship in firms and organizations in Poland: notarial and law firms, human rights organizations, banks, insurance companies, commercial firms, and government agencies. Students are given the right to choose the place of internship. In order to maximize the benefits of internship, each trainee is appointed head. Individual training programs are developed by the Coordinating Center for Schools of Foreign Law with the participation of trainees and their managers. The moon training provides students with the opportunity to strengthen their theoretical knowledge, develop practical skills and gain valuable experience in the daily work of the chosen specialty. During the time of the School's functioning, the participants of the internship were more than 200 students. Internships were conducted at such knowledgeable institutions as: Volkswagen Bank Polska, Comarch, Bank? L? Ski; law firms: Kubas & Partners, Traple, Konarski, Podrecki, SPCG, Cuckoo and Maruta; National Securities Depository, Warsaw Stock Exchange, Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, City Council of Krakow.

The school of Polish and European law is a small but practical step towards Ukraine's integration into the European Union. After all, Poland has already become a member of the European community, and we can take advantage of its invaluable experience. The recent talk about European integration has become fashionable, but making real steps is much harder. The activities of the School of Polish and European Law are our real step towards the European Union.
