In 2018, the Association of Lawyers of Russia supported the initiative of the Department of Energy Law of the Kutafin Moscow State Law University (MSAL) to establish the Valery Abramovich Musin Russian Law Award for contribution to energy law development.
2020 saw first Musin Readings. Topical Issues of Energy Law with Gazprom VNIIGAZ, LLC, as a co-organizer.
In 2020, numerous requests of students and colleagues of Valery Abramovich Musin prompted the establishment of V.A. Musin Research Center of Energy Law and Modern Legal Science, Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization.
