The Research, together with the Extension and the Education, comprise the support of the University as a Social Institution. To that extent, it has the function of giving back to society what is produced at its core, passing through a critical analysis while seeks the solution of legal problems, under a new perspective, using concepts and instruments of Law and correlated sciences. Through research, the student is prepared to be a transforming agent of the society in which he lives in, using the past to propose the building of the future legal science.
Research activities include:
a) scientific initiation programs (PIBIC / PIVIC Mackenzie);
b) initiation to research;
c) participation in study and research groups;
d) publications of articles and reviews in academic journals; and
e) presentation of papers in academic events.
The Institutional Program for Scientific Initiation (PIBIC / PIVIC Mackenzie) is intended to complement undergraduate education, offering to students the opportunity to discover how is processed the generation of knowledge and how scientific knowledge is acquired. These objectives are achieved by the student's participation in practical and theoretical activities in the research environment, under the guidance of a teacher-researcher. The effectiveness and consolidation of good research in our University is a priority issue of our Rectory, and is supported by the Mackenzie Presbyterian Institute, which has been making available Scientific Initiation Scholarships to our student-researchers.
