World University and School Brazil (and Russia) law school networks re Stanford Law CodeX, and potentially re planned WUaS law schools in their languages as well, recently emerged potentially.
Since MIT doesn't have a law school, there are somewhat limited OpenCourseWare resources at MIT OCW Translated Courses - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/ - which students could take toward free-to-students' CC-4 OCW online law degrees. We may have to create these, and in the context of specific countries like Brazil and Russia. How best to create both highest quality courses, as well as attract high achieving students, and for example at - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Brazil_Law_School_at_WUaS in Portuguese (and Russian).

World Univ & Sch/WUaS is seeking to facilitate:
Free Universal Education
Universal Basic Income
World Univ & Sch
Free Universal Education:
In developing World University and School, which is like CC Wikipedia in 300 languages with best STEM CC-4 OpenCourseWare (in 5 languages) and CC Yale OpenYaleCourses, WUaS seeks to accredit on these best STEM CC OpenCourseWare to offer free online CC university and high school degrees - and in all ~200 countries' main and official languages. WUaS is also planning free wiki schools in all 7,097 living languages for open teaching and learning. So World University and School is developing free, highest quality CC-4 OCW-centric and wiki universal education. WUaS plans to offer online Bachelor, Ph.D., Law and M.D. degrees as well as I.B high school degrees in all nation states' official languages. See, for example: http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2016/11/lake-skadar-basic-universal-income.html .
Grant writers' remunerative opportunity with WUaS:
If you might be interested in fund-raising with World Univ & Sch, and haven't done this before, there are some resources here - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Fundraising - and please contact Scott or Larry (confidentially if communicated):
World University and School seeks to offer grant writers a remunerative opportunity with regards to World Univ & Sch's 'Letter of Agreement: Facilitation Resources to Board +' - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1s_GBHW0gC1LPSbKNgwZz0_F2WVec_OgcWVK0WNtdkO0/edit?usp=sharing . Please contact Scott MacLeod at email@example.com for further information if you are interested, or email Larry Viehland at firstname.lastname@example.org . With regard to confidentiality and Friendly/Quakerly scruples / conscience with regard to plain speech & social responsibility / integrity (and non-profit 501 c 3's World Univ & Sch's ethical mission and vision and planning), both MacLeod and Viehland will observe confidentiality from each other, if requested, and with fundraisers that communicate with us.
Looking forward to hearing from you about your success in fund-raising -
re the steps below:
1. Let WUaS know beforehand from whom or where the monies you raise are coming.
2. Have the money sent directly to WUaS, either by
a. check to World University and School, P.O. Box 442, (670A Ridgecrest Road), Canyon, California, 94516
- credit card or PayPal via the main web page - http://worlduniversityandschool.org.
3. Send a message by mail or email to WUaS indicating the specific amount of reimbursement that you are requesting and how you would like the money delivered to you.
Friendly regards, Scott
Again, interested parties can contact either one of them (Viehland or MacLeod) confidentiality-wise. Ethics (e.g. https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/02/three-spined-stickleback-searched-on.html ) continue to remain a focus for World University and School in these regards, and re World University and School's mission - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Foundation - and eventually re fundraisers in each of all ~200 countries' official languages. WUaS will likely seek to build a culture of independent fundraisers in part and re Quaker Socially Responsible Mutual Funds' thinking - eg http://www.friendsfiduciary.org/our-funds/quaker-index/ where this "Quaker Index Fund" is successfully tracking the S&P 500 over 5 years, for example - and re http://www.friendsfiduciary.org/our-funds/ and http://www.friendsfiduciary.org/about-us/ ...
National Science Foundation's WUaS award news:
After a 6 month waiting period and as a requirement in the NSF grant process, WUaS has now successfully gotten a US Government "Data Universal Numbering System" (DUNS) # and is now now registering for a "System for Award Management" (SAM) account, potentially the last required step in this NSF grant award process, before WUaS receives the award.
Change NEWLY to 3rd Saturdays for WUaS Monthly Business Meetings:
The WUaS open hour-long electronically-mediated Monthly Business Meeting will begin to meet on 3rd Saturdays at 9am PT for MBM for the foreseeable future. A big CHANGE after many years, WUaS is seeking to collaborate fulsomely with Harvard Graduate School of Education Scratch programming language Meetups in SF on 2nd Saturdays, and re Home Lego Robotics especially.
World University and School will attend its first state of California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education workshop (https://twitter.com/CaBPPE/status/1085654570758418432) in the third week of February. This momentous event for WUaS with BPPE is a first step in becoming accredited first via the state of CA.

WUaS Press / Corp
WUaS is seeking also to explore facilitating an Universal Basic Income for all 7.5 billion people on the planet, in each of all ~200 countries' official languages, and building on what all ~200 countries' have learned already from such related programs. To this end, WUaS would like to announce a related job opportunity at Stanford:
The Stanford Basic Income Lab is excited to announce that it will be hiring on a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work with the Lab from September 2019-August 2020. The fellow will be responsible for carrying out extensive research on basic income experiments, studying ongoing pilot designs and reviewing the findings of cash-based programs throughout the world. This research will culminate in a comprehensive report - ‘Universal Basic Income: Learning from the Global Evidence Base’.
