As an official body of an inter-governmental organization (IGO) in diplomatic relations, IV University is in a strong position to effectively promote the application of international law to real-world practice. The University actively conducts scholarly research of international law for development of the Rule of Law itself, with emphasis on the priority mission of advancing civil rights and human rights worldwide.
The Law Faculty works in cooperation with the Sovereign Court of International Justice (SCIJ), an official Court of Law of the independent Judiciary. This allows legal scholars in the university to gain direct experience and mentorship from the Judiciary profession, and contributes to the Judiciary the practical support of university capabilities.
The Law Faculty also works with the autonomous Magna Carta Bar Chambers (MCBC), as the University Law Center, for graduate students to receive mentorship and apprenticeship with Law Professors, including formal Pupillage with Barristers, handling real-world legal matters, providing licensed legal services which generate non-profit budgets for the humanitarian projects of the university.
