11.05. The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) are jointly directed to prepare a plan:

11.05.1. Holistic Study Programme for all types of university professionals, both in science and humanities, with its theoretical and practical aspects (internships). The practical aspect is important, including the creation of World Electoral and Administrative Districts and other governance structures established in the Earth Constitution.

 11.05.1.1. (Reserved). 11.05.1.2. (Reserved)

11.05.2.  (Reserved)

11.05.3. The IGPWP / WCSA may cooperate with universities that are willing to accredit the program. The programme may be spread over several universities. The programme may operate without local, state or regional accreditation, upon the authority of the Earth Constitution, World Legislation and the continuing agencies that comprise the provisional Earth Federation, in particular, the IGPWP, which has its own world accreditation authority under this world legislation.

11.05.4. (Reserved).

11.05.5. Plan for logistical support to students (scholarships, accommodation, food, and workspace).

11.06. (Reserved).

11.07. The standing parliamentary Education Commission shall first report in six months to present further design of the joint Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) / World Civil Service Administration (WSCA) (Earth Constitution 8.4., 8.2.) programme, execution plan and financing, to be published securely at wcpa.global, at earthconstitution.world, and at as many mirror sites as feasible. For simplicity at the provisional stage, the Joint Commission may be referred to as the Education Commission or the IGPWP (Earth Constitution 19.1.2., 19.2.7.).

11.08. Standard law examinations. A function of the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) is to architect the standard examinations for professional work in the Earth Federation (EC 8.2.1. & 8.4.1.). In particular, the IGPWP / WCSA shall design and adopt the standard law examinations for professionals who are seeking certification (world license) within the cooperative benevolent associations that are the World Electoral and Administrative Districts (WEADs, WDs or world districts). Standard law examinations are in four categories: judicial, attorney, ombudsan and general law.

11.08.1. Judicial. For internal certification (internal licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, judicial exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 5, 15, 19, 20, 24, 28, 37, 39, 44 and 48. World judicial certification requires neither prior world attorney certification nor prior world ombudsan certification. However, for judicial practice, the IGPWP shall require law professionals with judicial licensure to take continuing education for eventual completion of certification in the categories of attorney certification and ombudsan certification. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. In particular, world legislative acts numbers 20 and 24 are particularly comprehensive and might reasonably take years of study to fully master, while the Earth does not have time to wait for full mastery of these laws before the beginnings of cases. Therefore, for initial issuance of the judicial certification, the exam need only cover the basics of world acts, with focus in particular on Acts 15, 19, 20 and 24. World Judges shall refer to these texts for the conduct of cases. In continuing education, world judges, for advancement in certification, will demonstrate cumulatively more proficient knowledge of these acts.

11.08.2. Attorney (Solicitor, Prosecutor). For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, attorney exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 24, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 43, 46, 54, 55, 56, 60, 69 and 70. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. The IGPWP may require law professionals with attorney certification to take continuing education to demonstrate advanced competencies.

11.08.3. Ombudsan (Public Defender). For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, ombudsan exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 4, 5, 13, 14, 15, 20, 24, 27, 28, 31, 32, 37, 45, 56, and 59. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. The IGPWP may require law professionals with ombudsan certification to take continuing education to demonstrate advanced competencies.

11.08.4 General Law. There is a great social need for individuals who are knowledgeable of the world law, who are not practicing law for duty in world court, but primarily for advising, representing or practicing outside of World Court. For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, General Law exams might comprise knowledge in any custom combination of the Earth Constitution and World Legislation.

11.08.5. As a condition of law certification, under solemn undertaking, the IGPWP shall require affirmation of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (Earth Constitution) as the Supreme Law of Earth within humanity’s institution of law. At least three world district judges shall witness the undertaking, which the world district court clerk shall register into the world court record. To begin, three IGPWP Standing Parliamentary Commission officers may begin the initial process of witness and record of solemn undertaking. Also, to begin at the World District level, three interim world district IGPWP commission officers may begin the initial process of witness and world court record of solemn undertaking.

11.09. The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) shall work toward establishing and operating a commission and an office of the IGPWP and an office of the World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) in each World Electoral and Administrative District (WEAD, WD, world district). To begin, commissioners may operate the office via the Internet and virtual space. The function of the world district commissions is to begin the Earth Federation, particularly the law services, within each respective world district. Commissioners of IGPWP and WCSA need not have world law certification, but may serve as witness to the solemn undertaking of IGPWP-certified law professionals seeking positions as world judges, world attorneys and world ombudsman in the respective district. World Districts shall only require world district residency from applicants who are seeking elected public office within the respective world district.

 11.10. If the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) seeks registration with any sub-jurisdiction, the incorporators shall register also the Earth Constitution and this world legislative act Number Four as annexes in force to any by-laws. Any registered IGPWP shall organize its structure to conform to the structure of the IGPWP and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) of the Earth Constitution (Articles 8.4. & 8.2.), insofar as feasible. Any registered IGPWP or WCSA shall endeavor to match structure within 18 months of the attainment of the first operative stage defined in Earth Constitution Article 17.3. World District level offices of the IGPWP and WCSA shall match the structure defined in the World District Standard.

11.11. The IGPWP / WCSA must neither state nor suggest that the certificates issued are valid outside of world electoral and administrative district certifications issued by IGPWP / WCSA. That is, certificates (licensures) of IGPWP/WCSA are null for all sub-jurisdictional levels of government (continental federations, states, counties, municipalities and private practice), unless the respective sub-governmental units adopt rules acknowledging the validity of the certificates outside of the world district.

11.12. The IGPWP / WCSA must neither state nor suggest that certificates issued by IGPWP/WCSA comprise transferable credits, unless respective sub-governmental units adopt rules acknowledging the validity of the certificates outside of the world district, and at least one bona fide sub-jurisdictional accreditation agency assigns credit to the programme.

11.13. The World Financial Administration may establish a Financial Aid office to finance programmes in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, up to a maximum of 100%. Participants may apply for financial aid, with qualification depending on the economic capacity of the participant.

11.14. The structure of the IGPWP/WCSA is not held to the same structural requirements as the Graduate School of World Problems.

Within 6 months after beginning of the first operative stage of Earth Federation. The IGPWP/WCSA shall submit plans to the world parliament to formally resolve into their respective IGPWP and WCSA structures. The IGPWP/WCSA plans themselves shall include steps to complete the formation of the resolved IGPWP and WCSA within 18 months of the beginning of the first operative stage of Earth Federation.

11.15 The World Financial Administration may establish a Financial Aid office to finance the educational programme in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, up to a maximum of 100%. Participants may apply for financial aid, with qualification depending on the economic capacity of the participant.

The World Parliament assigns &500,000,000,000 (&50,000 crore Earth Hours), per year, for the financial aid programs of IGPWP/WCSA.*

The World Parliament assigns &500,000,000 (&5,000 lakh Earth Hours), per year, for the administration of the provisional IGPWP/WCSA.*

*[“&” is a World Parliament approved sign for the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency.]

Budget allocations are cumulative, until the first operative stage of the Earth Federation, at which time the World Financial Administration may recommend to the World Parliament change in the budget structure for budget allocations to have expiry dates.

11.16. In the World Electoral and Administrative Districts, which are cooperative benevolent associations, everyone conducting WEAD work or studying to conduct WEAD work is a volunteer working in the sense of being free to work and not under duress to work from the World Electoral and Administrative District. However, the World Financial Administration and WCSA shall account for and pay all volunteers in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, which may include the keeping of accounts for Earth Hour payment by installments at a later date. The IGPWP/WCSA administration and the WEAD administrations must not suggest that any volunteer is working pro bono, unless the volunteer or the IGPWP/WCSA can demonstrate that payment would cause the volunteer to exceed established income limits (in which case, the World Financial Administration and the WCSA shall assign payment to the volunteer’s retirement account or WLA11 credit point account), as undocumented pro bono work during the initial stages of implementation of the Earth Federation would be a violation of Article 17.6 of the Earth Constitution. To simplify accounting, the World Financial Administration and WCSA may compute earnings on annual salary basis, rather than on a strict hourly punch clock.

11.17. The following people are appointed to form part of the work team (Standing Parliamentary Commission on Education, E.C. 19.1.2.5., and 19.1.2.8.) : 11.04.1. Dr. Glen T. Martin, coordinator 11.04.2. Judge David Percy Quispe 11.04.3. Laura George 11.04.4. Leopoldo A. Cook 11.04.5. Volnei Batista de Carvalho 11.04.6. Eugenia Alma de Quetzal Almand; 11.04.7. P. Narasimha Murthy. The Commission may co-opt additional members.
