The Association of Lawyers of Russia has thanked the management and staff of the Roscongress Foundation for their assistance in conducting the Third All-Russian Legal Dictation test. Along with the Association, the exercise was organized by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre, and Cartography, the public organization Business Russia, and Kutafin Moscow State Law University.
In a letter addressed to Roscongress CEO Alexander Stuglev, the executive director of the Association of Lawyers of Russia, Stanislav Alexandrov, noted that 220,581 people took the test on legal awareness in 2019, including 3,500 people who represented 164 countries.
Students and schoolchildren made up the largest group of people who took the test. They finished third in terms of correct answers along with entrepreneurs. Employees of the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre, and Cartography took first place by a wide margin and were followed in second by lawyers and civil servants. The dictation test showed that the savviest citizens on legal issues reside in Sevastopol and Kabardino-Balkaria.
