What does the Student Academic Society do?

Active since 2014, the Student Academic Society of BSU Law Faculty tries to contribute to the development of legal education at the university and in the country in general with its academic legal projects.


The Baku State University Student Law Journal, which has been published by Student Academic Society since 2014, has been included in global indexes and databases for a long time. The ability to write using legal reasoning methods is very important for lawyers. With its law journal, competitions, and research projects, SAS provides opportunities for law students to develop their legal writing skills both academically and practically.

Reasoning and argumentation are key tools of the legal profession. It includes justification, analysis and evaluation of the advanced legal arguments in accordance with the principle of logic. Among the goals of the competitions organized by the Moot Court Society is to encourage the development of students’ legal argumentation skills.

Determining the research question based on the factual circumstances of the case and obtaining a suitable conclusion by describing the facts in an appropriate manner is the basis of legal analysis. Legal analysis is effectively used when solving various legal problems posed by students in competitions organized by the Student Academic Society.

Legal research is one of the initial stages of the legal writing process, and it is an answer to the research question as a result of examining the legal literature related to the research question, as well as the selective application of the relevant legal norm. Through the Junior Legal Scholars Research Assistant Program, students can develop their knowledge and skills at this level.

The Student Law Journal has been indexed in the world’s largest legal database HeinOnline since 2015 and is the only Journal in the country to achieve this. Arbitration and mediation competitions were also organized by the Student Academic Society for the first time in the country.
