The culmination of strong academic relations, which have been cultivated between the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), one of Russia's largest universities and the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), during the last five years, is the signing of the Agreement on Wednesday 19 June, 2019 in Moscow for the launching of a Double Degree titled "Law in Global Integration", addressed to Russian and Greek students, as well as to students from all over the world.
At the signing ceremony of the Agreement, in addition to the RANEPA Rector, Professor Vladimir Mau and the Director of the EPLO, Professor Spyridon Flogaitis, present from the Russian faculty were: the Director of the Institute for Law and National Security (ILNS), Professor St. Mogilevsky, Adviser to the Rector V. Zorin and Mr. V. Smirnov, Deputy Director of the ILNS and Special Representative of the EPLO for cooperation with the Russian Federation
The ceremony also honored with their presence, inter alia, members of diplomatic missions of the EPLO member states in Moscow, such as the Portuguese Ambassador P. Viseu Pinheiro, the Azerbaijani Embassy Advisor, Mr. S. Sharifov, the Counselor of the Embassy of Greece Mr. G. Vlahakis, the Consul General of Cyprus, Mr. A.

The degree will be awarded both by the European Law & Governance School (ELGS) of the EPLO and the RANEPA Law School.
This is an internationally innovative 4-year program, as students are taught modern courses of national, European and international Law and Governance, and are invited to learn (in addition to English and Russian) French or Spanish, or Chinese or Portuguese, and complete their studies with the completion of a dissertation, either at the ELGS or at one of the partner universities in France, Spain, China, Portugal or Russia.
