Information about department

The history of the department began in 2003, when Kyrgyz State Law Academy was established on the basis of the Retraining and Further Training Institute (RFTI) of personnel at KSNU. The Department of Criminal Law of the RFTI was transformed into the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology of the KSLA.

In 2007, by the decision of the Academic Council and the order of the rector of the Kyrgyz State Law Academy, the department was renamed. As a result, the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology was divided into two independent departments:

  • Department of Criminal Law;
  • Department of Criminal Executive Law and Criminology.

From the day of education,  from 2003 to 2007 it was headed by Kurmanov Karpek Shamsudinovich, Doctor of Law; from 2008 to 2012, the department was headed by the PhD of Legal sciences, Esenbekova Asiya Tashtanbekovna; Sarmanova Bakhtygul Osmonbekovna from 2012 to 2013, PhD of Legal Sciences; Urmatbek Sulaiman from 2013 to 2014, PhD of Legal sciences; Esenbekova Asiya Tashtanbekovna from 2015 to 2019, PhD of Legal sciences, Acting Associate Professor; from 2019 to November 2020, the department was headed by the acting head of the department, senior teacher Baigubatova Nadira Rakhymbekovna.
