The Centre for Education Law was founded in 2001. Initially, the Centre for Applied Legal Research was established in order to carry out applied research in the field of legal support of educational reforms and the development of education legislation for the Russian Federation.
The Centre’s research interests are not limited to laws governing education. They also include other branches of Russian law – constitutional, administrative, financial, civil, labor and family law (specifically related to education).
The Centre’s staff actively participated in the public discussion around the Federal Law on Education for the Russian Federation. After the law was passed, they also took part in the development of the relevant regulatory legal acts.
Since 2013, the Centre has been working on a large-scale online project in order to support the Federal Law on Education for the Russian Federation. In 2013, the Center's experts held training seminars on the implementation of the new law in all entities of the Russian Federation.
Currently, the Centre’s employees provide support for the website 273-фз.рф, where various analytical materials and comments on the Federal Law on Education for RF are posted. They also prepare reviews of court practices concerning the most pressing issues in education.
In 2017, the Centre for Applied Legal Research became the Centre for Education Law. Its main goal is to become the leading Centre in the Russian Federation in the fields of international, comparative and national education law and politics.
The Centre has also identified its key research topics: federalism, inequality and accountability in education, and autonomy of educational institutions and teachers.
In 2019, the Centre for Education Law was transformed into Education Law Laboratory.
