10 June 2019

On May 29, 2019, Ivan Balykin, PhD in History, Associate Professor of the Department of Theory and History of State and Law of «KROK» University visited the Faculty of Law of Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University.

During Ivan Balykin’s meeting with the Dean of the Faculty of Law of Chernivtsi National University Professor Petro Patsurkivskyi, the leader of the working group of Chernivtsi National University for the implementation of the project MEDIATS Ruslana Havryliuk, the Head of the Mediation, Negotiation and Arbitration Laboratory of the Department of Public Law, Dmytro Kostia, as well as other members of the working group, agreed on the directions of further cooperation on the implementation of Master's Program for the training of professional Mediators.

Taking into account the already acquired, extremely valuable experience in the preparation of graduate students in the field of «Lawyer-Mediator», as well as the purposeful practice of the colleagues of the Department of Public Law to popularize the Mediation among the population of Western Ukraine, at the working meeting it was agreed to provide «KROK» University with methodological assistance on Master's Degree Program on Mediation and Organization of the educational process. In addition, the possibility of involving the representatives of Public Law Department of Chernivtsi National University for teaching of individual academic disciplines within the framework of the program on the basis of «KROK» University was considered.

To conclude, Ivan Balykin also had an opportunity to chat with graduate students who master the art of Mediation, to ask about their impressions of studying on the program, their hopes, expectations and vision of their place as professional Mediators in the Ukrainian legal services market. The meeting seemed extremely warm, frank and productive. Ivan Balykin noted that «the students are eager to study and much engaged in Mediation, and it was they who had the fate to carry its value to Ukrainian society».

We are proud of successful cooperation and wish further successes!
