Meet our Host: Qatar University, College of Law

Qatar University is a national university in Qatar. The University was established as the College of Education by a decree from the Emir of Qatar in 1973. The university is the only government university in the country. It provides high quality undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare competent graduates, destined to shape the future of Qatar. The university community has diverse and committed faculty who teach and conduct research, which addresses relevant local and regional challenges, advances knowledge, and contributes actively to the needs and aspirations of society. The university hosts nine colleges – Arts and Sciences, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering, Law, Sharia and Islamic Studies, Pharmacy, college of health Science, and a College of Medicine – with a total of almost 18,000 students. Courses in Qatar University are taught in Arabic or English depending on the major program plan.

Qatar University College of Law provides a unique model of Legal Education in the Arab World. In 2006, we acquired an independent status from the College of Sharia and Islamic Studies. In 2016, we proudly received accreditation from The High Council for Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (HCERES) and the British Accreditation Council (BAC). We offer a bachelor in law degree, and two master programs in private law and public law. In 2017, we expect to start another master program in international business law and a doctorate degree in law. Qatar University College of Law offers academic courses in both languages, Arabic and English. It is the only academic institution in the Arab region that offers independent and comprehensive courses on legal ethics and professional responsibility. It is also the only law school in the Arab region that appointed a clinical professor of law to direct and supervise the law clinic. Qatar College of law makes grants available for the faculty to carry out research projects, attend conferences and represent Qatar University in academic fora worldwide. It also attracts professors and legal scholars from different legal systems, including civil law and common law. Some professors are from the U.S, others from the U.K and many Arab professors who are members of the faculty, studied in the U.S and the UK. Our vision is to be the premier college of law in the region in recognition of the quality of its academic program, the achievements of its faculty and graduates, and its service to the local and the international community.
