After the 3rd year a competition will be held among law firms for students of this program, following which, after completion of training with them will be signed contracts for further cooperation and employment. Thus, the program of the 4th course will be selected under the conditions of legal companies and future positions of students.

Roman Podolprigora, project manager, Doctor of Law, professor at Caspian University:
“This program will allow to select the best entrants who are able to undergo a rather complicated and laborious program of training. It is profitable for both the market and future specialists. The market will receive qualified specialists ready to work at full capacity from the first day. And the future lawyers will be able to be sure of their future, because there are few such specialists in the market. ”
