The history of chair
History has ancient roots, when a group of teachers and lawyers, having started in the 50-s of the last century, worked for the chair of economics of the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy. Actual problems of village, agricultural production raised the question of expanding the teaching of legal disciplines in our university, as well as a question of creation a separate chair that would provide teaching of all legal disciplines at the university. Therefore, in 1996 the chair of Agricultural Law was founded. It was headed by Candidate of Economic Sciences, Professor A. Karasik. In 2000 the chair was renamed into the chair of Jurisprudence (and after the creation in August 2001 the Department of Law into the Agricultural, land and environmental law) whose head was an outstanding scientist in the field of agrarian and land rights, Doctor of Law, Professor, Honored Scientist of Ukraine, academician of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Vasil Z. Yanchuk by September 2006. The chair was named after Academician V. Yanchuk in the memory of this outstanding teacher and scholar in 2006.
