ATU's Faculty of Law and Political Sciences (LPS) is well renowned among the academia and, owing to its quality, a great share of its faculty members and alumni are employed in key posts inside and outside Iran.
In this page you will read about the most famous people at the LPS Faculty and their achievements. It should be noted that the list is by no means exhaustive and needs to be completed. Moreover, the list only includes those academic members who are currently teaching and researching in the Faculty. However, as many graduates of the Faulty are employed in outstanding institutes and organisations inside Iran and abroad, the list needs to include the names of LPS alumni who are holding outstanding positions, too. This will be done as soon as the names of these people are collected.
