The leader of the TOP-25 is N.I. Lobachevsky National Research Nizhny Novgorod State University. NEFU and Penza State University (20th place) scored the same indices - 143. Among federal universities, besides NEFU, only Siberian Federal University was included in the ranking and taking the 25th place.
“The ranking results are the result of a practically oriented approach to training future lawyers at NEFU, according to which providing free legal assistance in a law clinic to citizens in a difficult situation is an essential element of the educational process,” said Olga Ilyina, head of NEFU law clinic.
