Istanbul / Turkey

Dear ,

As Maltepe University Faculty of Law, we are proud to announce that we are hosting the 7th Maltepe University International Student Congress (MUISC) in Istanbul, Turkey, between 21-22 March, 2019. Since 2013, MUISC has brought students from around the world giving them the opportunity to express and share their research interests and ideas on a variety of important issues in law.Very happily, many undergraduate and graduate students from other foreign Universities have participated at MUISC actively since its inception, This year Maltepe University has decided to internationalize the organization process of MUISC Law as well, which was already international with respect to its participants.

MUISC(L) will be held in our beautiful campus in Istanbul between 21 and 22 March 2019. The main theme of this year’s conference will be “Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Context’’. University students participating at MUISC(L) as a member of the organizing team will be able to stay in our affiliate five-star Marma Hotel inside the campus. All accommodation (including hotel fees as well as breakfast, lunch and dinners) is free of charge for member students of the organizing team. Travel expenses (to Turkey and back home) will have to be covered by the participant himself/herself. Students who agree to volunteer in the Organizing Committee will be asked to help our team of students from Maltepe University Law Faculty in organizing MUISC(L) 2019. Our organization team is already well-experienced and will take care of most of the important issues related to the organization, but students who want to participate. "[email protected]" they can use e-mail.

We believe that this is a valuable opportunity for students of our respective institutions to meet and work with an international team to organize a major academic event.
