About the Speaker
Svitlana Khyliuk serves as director of the Ukrainian Catholic University School of Law. She previously served as head of the Department of Theory of Law and Human Rights and academic director of the bachelor's program at the law school. Khyliuk serves as a legal expert in the projects of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Project Coordinator in Ukraine, the Council of Europe, and the U.S. Department of Justice.

She teaches legal research, analysis, and writing, criminal law, and law of the European Convention on Human Rights.
While at Notre Dame as a visiting scholar during the fall 2021 semester, Khyliuk worked on how to leverage two polarities: judicial independence, on the one hand, and judge’s liability, on the other, in order to guarantee democracy and the rule of law in transitional societies. Khyliuk was also featured, together with Magdalena Charzyńska-Wójcik, in a story for Notre Dame Magazine in February 2023.
This event is co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Law School and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, both at the University of Notre Dame.
