The Law Program aims to prepare students for jobs in international projects and organizations, state bodies, non-governmental organizations, private law firms, and commercial entities. Therefore, the program is focused on developing general cultural, general professional, and professional competencies of its students in the fields of public international law and commercial law with a goal to prepare a new generation of lawyers who will be active in strengthening the rule of law. At the heart of our Program is the combination of the best traditions of liberal American and Central Asian education with an individual approach to each student. The Program pursues the following tasks:
- recruitment of the best applicants through the selection process (additional admission examinations in English, Mathematics, and essay) and preparation as part of the "New Generation Academy" Program and the Preparatory department;
- development of an educational program that meets the demands of domestic and international labor markets with an objective to build and advance cultural, general, and professional competencies of students;

- implementation of the principle of student-centered learning by providing flexible learning pathways with reliance on regular feedback (course evaluation by students and student grievance redress mechanism) and by supporting students’ autonomy;
- internationalization of the program via conclusion of international agreements on academic collaboration with universities and various organizations (student and teacher exchange programs, joint training programs and summer schools);
- regular cooperation with state authorities, non-governmental entities, and commercial organizations (foreign and local) with respect to student internships in order to evaluate the achievement of learning outcomes;
- service to the community via provision of free legal aid and contribution to the development of legal culture and the rule of law by way of conducting research and organizing socially significant events (the annual national constitutional justice moot court ‘‘Adilet’’ organized jointly by the Law Program, the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of the Kyrgyz Republic and international organizations, etc.).
