Ukraine’s largest law firm is making its contribution to the development of legal education in Ukraine. Asters has become a general partner of the Law School of the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU), and throughout 2019-2023 it will support legal education at the university.

Asters will provide financial and expert support of the UCU Law School. Funds received will be used to open new programs and projects. Also, some partners at Asters will join the advisory council of the UCU Law School, among whose members are leading Ukrainian and foreign lawyers.

“The profession of a lawyer contains high social obligations and demands the implementation of activities directed at supporting the development of society,” comments Markiyan Kliuchkovskyi , a partner at Asters. “At a significant number of institutions of legal education in Ukraine, the problem of the quality of legal education remains urgent. We are glad to support the UCU Law School, one of the most progressive institutions of higher education for lawyers in Ukraine.”

 “Partnership with Asters, a noted leader in the Ukrainian legal market, is for us particularly valuable,” stated Ivan Horodyskyy, Director of the UCU Law School. “It is good to consider the contributions of our partners as a long-term investment, inasmuch as it allows us to realize a number of large-scale projects which qualitatively will change the landscape of legal education in Ukraine and raise the professional level of Ukrainian lawyers in the future.”

The UCU Law School is a value-oriented law school in Lviv. Among its areas of activity, the School has educational programs for practicing lawyers, a master’s degree program, and projects with Ukrainian and international partners dedicated to the development of the rule of law and defense of human rights in Ukraine.

Thanks to partners, the Ukrainian Catholic University, a non-profit institution of higher education, has the possibility of developing innovative and value-oriented education in Ukraine. Soon the UCU Law School plans to launch large-scale projects with the support of its general partner.
