Among the blank of Ukrainian history
we would like to turn up another obscure page, it is the story about publiñ, political, publishing and
professional activity of Ukrainian Attorneys' Union in 1923-1939. Ukrainian
Attorneys' Union in Lviv (UAU) pre-conditions were the professional Ukrainian
legal organisations and chasopyses (newspapers) existing in Halychyna in the
19th, beginning of the 20th century. The first attempts made by Ukrainian Legal
Societies and professional legal chasopyses date of back to the end of the 19th
century. In 1881 Lviv University students created Group of Lawyers as a section
of the Academia Society. Theaim there
of was to extend the feeling of need for fundamental special training of
Ukrainians as lawyers for the Ukrainian nation's rights defence. The Group of
Lawyers conducted discussions, possessed its own library, and published its
resumes. Hence, probably, came the idea about publishing the professional legal
newspaper in Ukrainian. In 1889 under the guidance of famous attorneys
K.Levitskyj, A.Horbachevskyj, Y.Olesnytsyj and with assistance of O.Ohonovskyj,
S.Fedak and M.Shukhevych, they started to publish the Legal Chasopys (1889-1900). Since 1900 till 1910 due
to initiative of Legal Commission of
Shevchenko Scientific Society they had been publishing the Legal and Economic
Chasopys (10 volumes) and also Legal Library (Lviv, 1901-1909, Vol.1-2). In
1909 the Ukrainian Lawyers Society was created in Lviv. Edited by the professor
S.Dnistrynskyj, it was publishing Legal Bulletin (three issues). The World War
l and the events in Halychyna (1918-1920) turned to be the obstacle in activity of the Society and publishing Legal Bulletin. Failure to become
an independent state during 1918-1920 led to Ukrainian's public life decline.
All the functions in defence and aid to Ukrainian population in political
processes were taken up by Board of Ukrainian Defenders of the Ukrainian
Citizens Committee. However, there were attempts to create more substantial
-professional organisation to unite all Ukrainian attorneys in Halychyna and
all organisations of professional legal chasopys.
As a result of it, in 1923 the
Ukrainian Attorneys' Union in Lviv was created, and in 1927 the two issues of
the Bulletin of the Ukrainian Attorneys' Union were published (edited by
L.Hankevysh). It is worth of mentioning that along with activity of practising
Lawyers in Lviv, the law scientist's Activity took place in Legal Commission of
history -philosophy section of Sh.S.S. and also industrious training law
faculty of Ukrainian Secret University in Lviv was being kept. Among the
University teachers were S.Baran, E.Davydiak, V.Verhanovskyj, V.Okh-rymovych,
St.Starosolskyj, P.Sosenko, V.Celevych etc. The continuous preparation work led
to appearance since July 1, 1928 the first issue of chasopys “Life and Law“ as
an issue of Ukrainian Attorneys' Union in Lviv. Since May, 1929 it became the
joint issue of Ukrainian Attorneys' Union and Ukrainian Lawyer Society.
K.Levitskyj, M.Karatnytskyj, A.Rak, E.Davydiak, O.Nadraha, Y.Levitskyj,
R.Perfetskyj in different periods were the members of the editorial board.
Besides Legal periodical mentioned, U.A.U. published occasional legal research
results. The U.A.U. activity, aimed at Ukrainian nation rights protection,its
participation in the political process, public patriotic and professional
activity requires separate study. The author, for publishing of it, is
preparing the results of this study.
This article's aim is
the distribution among lawyers, scientists and attorneys the information about
scientific and practical issues of Ukrainian Attorneys’ Union in Lviv.
Scientific publications of
Ukrainian law scientists on legal issues in Czech-Slovak Republic, 1921-1940:bibliography.-Kyiv: Ukrainian
Publication Association,1998.- P.62.
Scientific activities of the Ukrainian law scientists who emigrated to
Czech-Slovak Republic were primarily centered within the department of Law and
Social Science of the Ukrainian Liberty University in Prague (ULU).
Moreover, some of the scientists were teaching and engaged in scientific
studies at the Ukrainian Industrial Academy in Podyebradakh (UIA) as well as at
the Ukrainian High Pedagogical Institute named after M.Dragomanov.
Scientific-pedagogical activities involved delivering separate law
courses, organizing seminars. The following were the program of courses and

In general during 1921-1940
there were sessions on more than 50 separate law courses and seminars taught to
quite a significant number of the ULU students. For comparison, the following
is the number of students studying at the law and social science department in

of the lecture brochures of professors and associate professors were published
by the ULU and UIA printing facilities as well as by the “Association at UIA”.
Specifically scientific-research activities in the sphere of Law were parallel
to the academic process and to some extent were also conducted independently.
Results of the scientific research were made public through delivering speeches
or presenting brochures/essays at the sessions of the department or at the
meetings of scientific associations: the Ukrainian Law Association in
the Historical-Philological Association in Czech-Slovak Republic, the Ukrainian
Scientific Institute in Berlin and Warsaw, as well as through participating in
various scientific gatherings/congresses. At the first Ukrainian scientific
congress in Prague (October 3-7, 1926) the law-sociology workshop had been
established within which 4 sessions were held and 25 scientific brochures
presented. At the
second Ukrainian scientific congress in Prague (1931) the law-economic workshop
was established and several scientific brochures were presented.
Significant achievement in the activities of the Ukrainian law-scientists was
the organization of the Ukrainian Law congress which took place in Prague,
October 4-7, 1933 under the honorary chairmanship of the ULU’s rector –
I.Gorbachevsky. Opening and summary remarks at the congress were delivered by
S.Dnistryansky. At the congress scientific brochures were presented, for
instance: L.Biletsky “The oldest version of
“Ryuska Pravda”, Zh.Perich (law professor at the Belgrade University and
the International Law Academy in Hague) “Non-juridical elements in the Law”,
A.Yakovliv “Progress of the Ukrainian Law in 17th-18th centuries”,
S.Dnistryansky “New ways for the Ukrainian State Law”, and many others (total
Quite interesting were items of the resolution adopted at the congress: “a)
congress recognizes it is necessary to publish a scientific-practical version
of the text of “Ryuska Pravda”; b) recognizes the necessity to institute
Criminal Court in Ukraine with participation of the civilian element; c) to
recognize economic law as a valid subject of the University workshops; d)
congress recognizes a substantial influence of the Ukrainian social and
economic theories upon Moscow and wants to focus scientists’ attention on the
fact that it is advisable to further research other aspects of this influence;
e) congress expresses its desire to create within the Ukrainian Law Association
in Prague the standing Commission on development of scientifically-proven
agricultural code of Ukraine” as well as resolutions of unofficial character:“recognizing that the famine is the result of human rights and rights of Nation

law scientists established in 1923 the Ukrainian Law Association which united
primarily law professors of the ULU, and also attempted to establish the
Ukrainian Law Institute. However, due to financial constraints this idea was
not possible to realize.
The purpose of this Association was to “unite theoretical and practical
Ukrainian law forces on the basis of researching Ukrainian Law issues, as well
as care about social, material (financial) and moral interests of the Ukrainian
law scientists in Czech Republic and assist in establishing friendly
relationship between the Ukrainian and Czech law scientists”. In 1933 there
were 61 members of the Association. Among them there were also several
scientists from the Trans-Carpathian Ukraine.
Ukrainian law scientists
maintained contacts with scientific circles of the Soviet Ukraine, Western
Ukraine, Czech-Slovak Republic and other countries. Their publications were
printed and revised in magazines in Kyiv and Lviv. In 1928 S.Dnistryansky was
elected regular academician of the All-Ukrainian Academy of Science. He also
taught law in the Czech High school for political science, civil law in Prague
German University and was a member of the examination commission from the law
department of the German University.
Ukrainian law scientists were
also involved in the international law activities, for instance: participated
in congresses of the Czech-Slovak law scientists in 1925 and 1930, in the
International Congress of Criminologists in Prague (1930), in the first
congress of law scientists from Slavic countries in 1933.
This was a very brief overview of the Ukrainian law scientists’
activities in Czech-Slovak Republic which topic assuredly deserves a much more
Subject of this publication is
the annotated bibliography of scientific publications by the Ukrainian law
scientists working in emigration in Czech-Slovak Republic: in the Ukrainian
Liberty University in Prague, the Ukrainian Industrial Academy in Podyebradakh,
the Ukrainian High Pedagogical Institute named after M.Dragomanov, the
Ukrainian Technical-Industrial Institute; in Poland: in the Ukrainian
Scientific Institute in Warsaw; in Germany: in the Ukrainian Scientific
Institute in Berlin during 1921-1940. This bibliography includes publications
in Ukrainian, German, Polish, Czech, English and French languages and were
printed in Czech-Slovak Republic, Ukraine, Poland, Austria, USA, France,
Germany and other countries.
To prepare this bibliography
publications were used which were saved due to selfless efforts of many people
in special funds of the scientific library named after V.Stephanyk in Lviv, the
Lviv State University library named after I.Franko, as well as materials from
the Central State Historical Archive of Ukraine in Lviv. It is also worth
noting that this is not the first research of such matter. First attempts to
prepare a general bibliography of publications by the Ukrainian law scientists
in Czech-Slovak Republic were previously made by P.Zlenko, V. and A.Zajikiny.
In the research activities to compile bibliography of publications of the
Ukrainian law scientists were also involved Ya.Padokha, S.Dnistryansky,
V.Starosolsky and A.Yakovliv.
In 1930th there were several publications dedicated to particular
individuals from among the Ukrainian law scientists group: S.Dnistryansky,
P.Klunny, O.Ejhelman, R.Lashchenko. In 1992 M.Mushinka published his essay on
the activities of S.Dnistryansky.
The purpose of this publication
is to remember unjustly forgotten or previously neglected or unknown scientific
publications by the Ukrainian law scientists and bring them back into the realm
of the Ukrainian law science.
jurisprudence: materials for bibliography (xix—xx century). -Lviv: Shevchenko Scientific Society,
as a part of the Ukrainian history, has long-running traditions. Due to
concrete historical conditions, Ukrainian law did not have possibilities to
develop consistently at the state level until
the early 90s of the past century.
With the restoration of the
independent Ukrainian state it is our duty to compile a thorough bibliographic
index of works by Ukrainian law specialists
– who worked in the past and who work for the benefit of Ukraine nowadays even though they have been
scattered around vast geographical territories of both Ukraine (Galychyna,
Trans-Carpathia, Bukovyna) and foreign countries.

In XIX century there were
numerous bibliographies compiled on Russian law science which enable the examiner
to evaluate the development of the law science and practice in tzarist Russia.
Certainly, it would be difficult to find in those bibliographies even a passing
reference to Ukrainian law school or its achievements. The study of this period
in the light of Ukrainian law schools still awaits its examiner.
The 20s-30s of the XIX
century brought hope for the development of Ukrainian scientific and practical
jurisprudence. This period is characterized by scientific research patriotism
and truly state-hood building ideas in the research of the Ukrainian law
history and prospects for its development in the future. However, due to known
reasons the development of Ukrainian jurisprudence was extremely
ideologically-charged. Yet even under such conditions we can still talk of
Ukrainian law schools on theory and history of the state and law, international
law, civil, criminal and other brunches of law.

Commission on studying history of Western-Rus’ and Ukrainian Law,
the Commission on studying customary law of Ukraine and the Commission on
soviet law which were established by the All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.
Unfortunately, even modern researchers do not pay enough attention to the
activities of those Commissions and works of their employees. Therefore, the
author includes into the index the bibliographic description of works by
Ukrainian law specialists which editions were published in the editions of the
All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences: “Works of the Commission on studying

by the Ukrainian law specialists who were working outside the Soviet Ukraine,
researching Ukrainian law and law of the other countries, developing Ukrainian
