Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Konyuk met students and teachers of Grodno State University of Yanka Kupala
During the meeting which was held in the format of an open dialogue, Alexander Konyuk answered students' questions concerning a variety of topics.
At the very beginning of the conversation, Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Konyuk noted that each visit to Grodno is significant for him. Back in the day, he left his hometown to go to the capital.
—I was not as lucky as you: in 1977, there was no law faculty in Grodno State University of Yanka Kupala yet, — Alexander Konyuk said. — If there was, I would have stayed here, of course. Kupala University trains excellent specialists.
The Prosecutor General of Belarus told that he was always sincerely happy to have the opportunity to speak to with students and was seriously preparing for such meetings, trying to give young people and future specialists as much useful and interesting information as possible. Alexander Konyuk told the students of the law faculty of Yanka Kupala State University about the specificity of the Department headed by him, and also touched upon the issues of reforming the judicial and legal system. He recalled that the concept of judicial and legal reform had been created in the country in 1992, but it so happened that the process of serious changes in the system had begun much later, in 2011. Answering one of the questions raised in the audience, the Prosecutor General speculated a little about how much the Prosecutor's office would change in 10 to 15 years:
— It is difficult to say for sure, but one thing is clear: the work of prosecutors will continue to be in demand. Most likely, the functions of the Prosecutor's office will be transformed, but the basics of the profession in their classical sense will remain.
Traditionally, students were interested in employment issues. Alexander Konyuk agreed that the service in the Prosecutor's office is prestigious, the entire legal elite is represented in the Prosecutor's office system, which means that there is great competition among applicants for the corresponding positions. But we are interested in good, knowing specialists, and they are always expected. As for the glut in the market with certified lawyers, this problem does exist.
— Does this mean that the number of law students should be regulated? Possibly. But we need to see how high a level is given to young professionals in a particular educational institution. Graduates with a law degree from the Yanka Kupala State University usually have a good level of training, – the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Konyuk noted.
During the open dialogue, students asked a lot of questions about violations in the field of IT, opportunities to use new information technologies for more extensive coverage of the Prosecutor's office activities, as well as cases of criminal proceedings due to publications on the Internet. The danger of spreading fake information on the Internet, as well as how representatives of the Prosecutor's office treat this trend was also discussed. The students also touched upon such a topic as making amendments to the Administrative Violations Code.
At the end of the conversation, we talked about the Prosecutor General's hobbies, favourite sports and representatives of the gentle sex in the profession. Alexander Konyuk made no secret of the fact that the service in the Prosecutor's office is not easy and sometimes women in uniform have a hard time. However, both physical and moral strength is important for all representatives of this profession. But at the same time, the Prosecutor's work is very diverse and therefore interesting. And, if there is a vocation, then gender does not play a significant role at all. At the moment, almost half of the Prosecutor's office employees are women.
Summarising the meeting, Alexander Konyuk admitted that he was impressed:
– It was a breath of fresh air for me to talk to you. I felt your creativity and saw interested individuals here. And, you know, I was just thinking that I would love to go back to my student days. This is the most beautiful time!
The Prosecutor General of Belarus sincerely wished that Kupala students were always lucky, that they successfully realized themselves in the profession and were never disappointed in their choice. He also added that he will address the most sincere wishes to their native Alma Mater during the meeting dedicated to the anniversary of the Yanka Kupala State University. The ceremony will be held on February 20 at the Grodno Regional Philharmonic Hall and will be one of the holiday week highlights.
