Our main goal is to draw attention of law scholars and students to today’s most challenging issues of international law through timely seminars and to provide opportunities for students to connect with highly notable scholars and discuss their ideas and research interests with them.
Through our courses we offer more comprehensive syllabuses for some fields of law which are usually not well addressed in university courses, in order to equip the students and legal professionals with skills and knowledge they can put in to practice.
Our focus is on International Law and International Arbitration and Foreign Investments as we deem these fields of law of high importance with regards to our country situation in the today’s world and international legal, political and economic order.
We need international lawyers and negotiators with remarkable skills and MIS intends to contribute to foster the new generation of legal experts with providing accessible and affordable courses.
