Department: History and Modern Period

The department is the legal successor of the department of General Legal Disciplines, created in 1958 on the basis of the Minsk Department of the Faculty of Extra-Mural studies of the Higher School of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR. At that time the department taught disciplines "State Law of the USSR", "State Law of Foreign Socialist Countries", "State Law of the Bourgeois Countries, Free from Colonial Dependence".

Together with subsequent transformations of the educational established, the department underwent organizational and legal changes. After Belarus gained state sovereignty, on the basis of the Minsk Higher School of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR was established the Academy of the Militia (now the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs). After a number of renaming, the current Department of State and Legal Disciplines in 2001 received a modern name.

An important direction of the work of the Department of Constitutional and International Law is international cooperation. The department interacts with various international structures, in particular, with UN missions in the Republic of Belarus, the International Committee of the Red Cross (Moscow and Kiev regional delegations).
