Andriy Yakovliv 1872–1955 was a well-known law and history researcher, social activist and politician, one of the founders of Ukrainian legal science in the Diaspora, and a prominent representative of Ukrainian legal thought in the 20th century. During the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917–1921 he showed his political and administrative skills in important positions in the power system of the Ukrainian state. After its fall, he led a political and scholarly activity in exile in Czechoslovakia and the Republic of Poland, and after World War II in Belgium and the United States.
