Asters Law Firm Support to All-Ukrainian Capital Markets Law School


Within the framework of its corporate program developed to support legal education in Ukraine, Asters Law Firm was general partner of the All-Ukrainian Capital Markets Law School, which was organised by the Ukrainian Bar Association Students' League and held in Kyiv from 20 February through 22 February 2009.

The school sessions were attended by 35 law students from a number of higher learning institutions from various regions of Ukraine. The school’s agenda included presentations and lectures by practicing lawyers, as well as student round-tables, contests and debates, which provided the students with ample opportunities to show their knowledge and ability to defend their positions before their colleagues.

The School academic sessions focused on the following issues:
  • Legal regulation of the capital markets
  • Impact of the reforms of the joint stock companies laws upon the development of the Ukrainian stock market
  • Primary and secondary securities markets
  • Securities market infrastructure
  • Mutual investment funds
  • Securities traders' organization and functioning
Oleksiy Yatsenko, an associate with Asters' corporate law practice group, made a presentation entitled "Some Legal Aspects of Corporate Relations and Securities Turnover". Yevgen Kravtsov, an associate with the firm's financial and securities practice group, acted as legal expert and judge at the student round-table debates.

In sharing his impressions of the school and its participants, Oleksiy Yatsenko stated "Such events, which bring together the most proactive students from all over Ukraine and the best experts in the field, prove to be an invaluable forum for the exchange of experiences and fresh ideas. They inspire young people to pursue advanced research and further academic achievements, and increase practicing lawyers' awareness of our responsibility for the proper and timely transfer of knowledge. The school lectures proved to be more than mere recitation of the prepared materials; it was a genuine student-expert interactive exchange.
