Welcome to the website of the College of Law (CL).
The College of Law, thanks to the collective efforts of its faculty and staff members, works diligently to enhance its programs and activities which are published through the media and the College’s website. As a result, there is an increased number of students enrolling in these programs to draw from the expertise of the esteemed faculty.
In addition to the Bachelor degree in Law, the College introduced three Masters Programs and is currently working on other specialized degrees further to preparing a doctoral program.
The College of Law is focused on quality outcomes for its students. Hence, following its strategy, the College links the studies with the national and local realities as well as international needs and developments. Also, the College has allotted a great deal of importance to develop the professional skills aspect of the graduates by expanding access to practical applications. For instance, legal internships at international law firms constitute a unique experience to hone the skills of law students. To this end, the College of law has signed several memoranda of understanding with American, British, and Canadian law firms.
Moreover, the College of Law regularly participates in international competitions such as the Philip Jessup International Law Moot Court in Washington, DC, the Monroe E. Price Media Law Moot Court in Oxford, UK, and the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court in Vienna, Austria. The law students compete against other law schools at an international level.
In addition, the College contributes to the community service by holding an annual conference and several seminars and workshops where prominent speakers and leading experts participate and share their expertise.
That being said, The College of Law promises to continue to make every effort to be at the vanguard of law schools in service to its students and the community.
Finally, I ask God Almighty to bless us with the knowledge he bestowed upon us, and to benefit our society, under his wise leadership, believing in the originality and progress of our society.
