Courses

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.

Jessup Moot Court Competition

Moot Court competitions are a recently introduced educational methods of International Law in Iran which have gain remarkable importance and attraction among law students.
Jessup is the oldest and, in some way, most comprehensive moot court in the field of International Law.
This moot court competition is organized globally by the International Law Students Association (ILSA), an organization based in the United States, and it has the highest number of participants among competition of this kind. 
We have decided to align our efforts with trends followed by law students to be more efficient in helping law students enhance their capabilities and to engage in research and academic purposes.
For this reason, we decided to facilitate the administration and organizing process of the Jessup competition, enhance the experience of the qualifying rounds in Iran and provide assistance to the champion team of each year’s qualifying rounds to be able to participate in the international rounds which is held annually in Washington DC, United States.
Also, we have been engaged in organizing annual Jessup Summer Schools in collaboration with ILSA to equip law students with skills and knowledge they need for participation in Jessup competition and to fill the gap between conventional university courses and a more productive and interactive methods of learning.

MIS Law Journal

Our main goal for publishing a law journal is to have a different and more innovative kind of legal publication.
We do not intend to have a journal consisting of today’s most challenging issues of international law, shortcomings of the legal system and possible solutions for them.
The goal is to draw law student’s attention to these shortcomings and to invite them to contribute to the international law society by focusing their researches and studies in the newly emerged challenges of international law.
For this means we ask university professors and legal experts to write their ideas on emerging topics of international law as a guidance for law students and also, we accept graduated students’ articles for publication in our journal.
We appreciate new ideas for contributing to international law studies. We support research projects, courses and seminars ideas.
