The relevant appeals to the Cabinet of Ministers, ministries, other bodies of executive power and local self-government were sent by the committee to take measures in order to eliminate shortcomings and infringements detected by the Accounting Chamber.

The committee held hearings on accessibility of higher education to the young of Ukraine.

The hearings took place on July 13 being attended by high-ranking parliamentarians, representatives of the line ministry, scientists, public figures, representatives of executive authorities and local self-government.

They also outlined a range of important innovations that should be introduced into the labor market, namely: non-formal education for young people capable of increasing their market weight and allowing them to change their area of expertise if needed, to acquire new skills;  establishing certain standards for different higher education institutions, which will allow to standardize requirements for graduates and make them more competitive on the labor market as well as to maintain a high level of legal education in Ukraine.

Into the discussion, there also were scientists from different Ukrainian higher education institutions, training lawyers and legal experts of all sorts.

The hearing audience defined the prime tools to better access of the youth to legal education as follows:

developing of inclusive education,

paying a closer attention to Ukrainian language and literature, basics of law, human rights and foreign languages at schools,

excusing from external independent examination for persons with I and II categories of disability, ATO participants and those affected by the Chornobyl disaster,

revising eligibility criteria for foreign language knowledge by teachers at B2 level,

introducing of accomplishable autonomy and independence for higher education institutions,
