Institutional collaboration

One of the major objectives of UNAM is to organize and perform research, mostly adressing national circumstances and problems. This is essential to building bridges with national and international organisms that contribute to the mission of our most important university.

The Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas sustains open policies that ensure the constant creation of new inter-institutional channels of communication, and which maintain a close relationship with other national or international bodies, thus allowing us to address current issues with a vocation towards academic leadership and an impact on society.


Specialized consultancy, opinion and/or diagnostics in all areas of law and legal matters.

The IIJ relies on specialized researchers in different areas of law and other social sciences such as sociology, demography, political science and economics, which enriches legal studies by highlighting complexity. This structure allows for the multi and inter-disciplinary nature of the academic endeavors to which the Institute is invited to participate through advice, opinions or diagnosis.

Training in different legal areas by means of courses and workshops.

Though the Institute is organized around the traditional areas of law, it also develops innovative lines, cores, research areas, and methodological approaches, which allows it to occupy the academic forefront and to transmit necessary knowledge and skills to people who work for a company or an institution, thus allowing them reach their goals more effectively.

Continuing education by means of Diplomas, Master's and PhD programs.

Continuing Education is considered as an activity that complements the activities of a university, aiming at providing critical answers to different higher-education demands in a complex context that includes the Knowledge Society and working environment, in addition to developmental and cultural issues. In this manner, several members of the IIJ actively represent the Institute in many public and private Mexican universities.

Joint publishing of books and reviews.

Because of the outstanding quality and worldwide recognition of the IIJ's publications, several institutions present their works to us to be considered for publication. The goal is to ensure that joint publications reach all potential readers through any means available. This is a factor for the recognition that this institute and its researchers have reached, at national and international levels.

Design and implementation of research projects.

Research being the main objective of the IIJ, its expertise in designing, developing, implementing and even evaluating research projects over a wide range of topics must not be obviated.
