And today we have started a new joint educational program with Tashkent State University of Law. This is the first joint educational program with the higher educational institutions of the Republic of Uzbekistan,” said Iryna Kiturka, Rector of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno.
As Iryna Kiturka said during an online meeting with the first year students from Uzbekistan and the administration of Tashkent State University of Law, the specialty "International law" is much in demand among applicants. Every year a large number of them apply right to this specialty.
