Charles Kotuby was named visiting professor at the Kyiv School of Economics
Charles Kotuby, professor of practice in Pitt’s School of Law, was appointed as a visiting professor at the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) in Ukraine.
The executive director of Pitt’s Center for International Legal Education will foster education efforts to help Ukraine recover from its current war, and will move Pitt and KSE toward greater cooperation. Kotuby joins Pitt Associate Professor of Economics Tymofiy Mylovanov at the school.
Through CILE programs like the Rule of Law Fellowship, Kotuby has already contributed to Pitt’s efforts to help Ukraine. The fellowship — sponsored by local and international firms, foundations and companies — funds tuition and living expenses to deserving Afghan and Ukrainian lawyers pursuing an LLM, or specialized master’s degree in law, from Pitt’s School of Law.
Kotuby is also actively representing Ukrainian clients with claims related to Russia’s invasion as well as various pro bono legal reform efforts in the country.
