Biography

Nikolay Kropachev

From 1998 to 1999, he served as the Dean of the Faculty of Law at St Petersburg University. He was then dismissed from the position of the Dean of the Faculty of Law. Yet, in less than a month, he was reinstated to the Dean of the Faculty of Law, a position he held until 2010. From 2006 to 2008, he was the Senior Vice-Rector, also serving as the Dean of the Faculty of Law. In 2008, he was elected as the Rector of St Petersburg University. He was then appointed as the Rector of St Petersburg University by the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation three times subsequently.

Nikolay Kropachev was born on 8 February 1959 in Leningrad. In 1981, he graduated from Leningrad State University. His research supervisor was Professor Vadim Prokhorov. From 1981 to 1984, he pursued his doctoral studies at the Department of Criminal Law at Leningrad State University. In 1984, he defended a candidate dissertation ‘Legal Relations’ under the supervision of Professor Nikolay Belyaev.

What we focused on was disputed controversial issues. We had intense debate. From the very first years at the University, he has taken an avid interest in the subject of responsibility and justice. Such contemplation formed his ideology, frame of mind.

Vadim Prokhorov, Professor in the Department of Criminal Law at the Faculty of Law and Honorary Professor at St Petersburg University («’What I see is a man committed to his work...’»)

  • Since 1985, he was an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Criminal Law at Leningrad State University

His research expertise covers education law, theory of state and law, criminology, and criminal law. These research interests are reflected in Professor Kropachev’s more than 80 scholarly works, teaching and learning guides, including a number of monographs and textbooks.

In 1999, he was dismissed from the position of the Dean of the Faculty of Law (Order No 669/1 published on 30 August 1999 and abolished on 22 September 1999 according to Order No 738/1).

From September 2000 to September 2005, he served as the Chairman of the Charter Court at St Petersburg (Decisions of the Charter CourtNikolay Kropachev: ‘A decision of a court always regards someone’s interests’, ‘Abundance of commas impedes legislation’, Decisions of the Charter Court, Nikolay Kropachev: ‘A decision of a court always regards someone’s interests’ , ‘Abundance of commas impedes legislation’, Citizens do not understand lawyers and officials. This can lead to a disaster).

Initiatives

The first in Russia project to computerise the court system that aims to ensure the principle of open justice (1996)

The first in Russia robotic library system for archiving and storing large amounts of data as part of the implementation of a memorandum of cooperation with Panasonic, one of the University’s partner (2015)

The first in Russia project on abolition of the ‘curfew’ in student halls of residence. In 2005, he as the Dean of the Faculty of Law ensured that all measures were in place to provide students in law with 24/7 access to their hall of residence. In 2010, he as the Rector of the University applied these rules across the University.  Only in 2014, this initiative was supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.

Using clinics as a form of education

In August 1998, the Legal Clinic of the Faculty of Law was opened at St Petersburg University. Its practice has shown that using clinics as a form of education is advantageous and efficient. They began to gain currency at the University on the initiative of Nikolay Kropachev, Rector of St Petersburg University.  At present, St Petersburg University successfully run 13 clinics: the Legal Clinic; the Psychological Clinic; the Social Clinic; the Sociological Clinic; the Centre for Financial Literacy; the Social Translation Centre; the IT clinic; the Media Centre; the Environmental Clinic; the Archive Centre; the Mediation Centre; the Museum and Architectural Clinic; and the Clinic of Communication Projects (Practice in the form of clinic at St Petersburg University).

The Research Park established on the principles of openness and accessibility for all researchers

By the early 1990s, the University’s research facilities and infrastructure had been outdated. Our big breakthrough came in 2007, when the University opened the Russia-leading Research Park with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities (Research Park: on the Road to the Future). The St Petersburg University Research Park has state-of-the art facilities and infrastructure that are at the forefront of experimental research of exceptional quality. The University ensures open and transparent access to the research facilities and infrastructure.

Defences according to the University’s own rules

St Petersburg University began work on changing the rules for defending dissertations when it became obvious that public confidence in academic degrees in our country was declining. In 2013, the University began conducting its own defences of dissertations submitted for a PhD degree of St Petersburg University. This became a kind of continuation of the long-standing tradition of awarding its own academic degrees at the University that was established almost 100 years ago. This practice was recognised as successful. So, in 2016, a law was adopted, according to which the two leading universities of the country – St Petersburg University and Moscow State University – were entitled to conduct thesis defences on their own terms for the state-recognised academic degrees of Candidate of Sciences and Doctor of Sciences (St Petersburg University's own academic degrees: past and present)

The University openness policy

St Petersburg University policies have always been ultimately transparent. All information – about competitions, grants, entrance exams, decisions, and documents – is published on the University website. Any interested person can therefore read it (A Fresh Start: from the ‘system’ of rumours and gossiping to feedback).

Among other things, special sections have appeared on the University website:

Virtual Reception of St Petersburg University

Since August 2011, the St Petersburg University portal has been publishing the responses of the University officials to the enquires of University students and staff. The list of officials responsible for different aspects of the University life is expanding. The number of responses to enquiries is constantly growing. (The Virtual Reception).

‘I ask you to break the rules!’

Since 2011, the University has been publishing enquiries submitted to the Rector on its official website. Since 2015, according to the Rector’s decision, there is a rule that stipulates that the University is to publish all enquiries to the University’s officials in the section ‘I ask you to break the rules!’, in which they ask ‘as an exception’ to disregard the provisions of the current legislation or the by-laws of St Petersburg University. As practice has shown, the publicity of such appeals has led to a significant decrease in the flow of inappropriate requests and demands.

Open competitions for St Petersburg University grants

On the initiative of Rector Nikolay Kropachev, the University implements the right of academic and teaching staff to freely participate in the open competition for grants from St Petersburg University to conduct research. Previously, the ability to exercise this right had been limited by predetermined faculty quotas. At present, grants are provided based on the results of a unified competition, in which only the content of the application matters, but not the applicant's belonging to a particular team (Basic rights of the academic staff at St Petersburg University).

The Ethics Committee of St Petersburg University

Relatively recently (in the spring of 2011), on the initiative of Rector Nikolay Kropachev, the Ethics Committee of the Academic Council of St Petersburg University was established at the University as a special guarantee of the rights of the University staff and students. Any University student or employee can apply there if they believe that the ethical standards by which the University lives have been violated in relation to him or her (How does the University solve ethical issues?, Ethics Committee).

Separation of administrative and academic powers

The principle of differentiation of administrative and academic powers has been implemented at the University for several years.

Academic and teaching staff can use the Virtual Reception portal in order to solve issues that they face: they can directly contact the University officials responsible for certain aspects of the University life, without the necessity to contact transfer members (Saving time — for development). The heads of departments and laboratories, deans of faculties, and directors of institutes therefore cease to be dispatchers and focus on solving the academic issues of their teams.

Active involvement of employers in the University’s life

Employers started being involved in the work of state examination boards of St Petersburg University in 2016 on the initiative of Rector Nikolay Kropachev.  Their interest and impartiality gave exactly the result that had been expected at the University. Many members of examination boards have had a desire to help the University even more actively. Assessing the quality of graduates' training and their readiness for a future professional life, employers express their desire to get involved in University life at an earlier stage. Currently, employers have a real impact on the University life. They develop requirements for future specialists (from applicants to graduates). They are members of: the councils of academic programmes; admissions committees; teaching methodology committees; scientific committees; and state examination boards (Learn more about engagement with employers)

The first ever e-library

The Law Branch of the M Gorky Scientific Library at St Petersburg University is the first fully computerised branch library in Russia. It is an integral library information and computer complex, with an e-catalogue and an e-library card being introduced back in 1998.  For the series of works ‘Developing new learning technologies based on the library information and computer complex’ for higher education institutions, St Petersburg University employees won the 2001 Presidential Prize in Education.
