The College of Law (CL) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) will host an information session to showcase its new LLM (Master of Laws) degrees to current and prospective students on June 26.
The pioneering degrees an LLM in International Law and Foreign Affairs and an LLM in International Economic and Business Law are at the intersection of the legal, business, and entrepreneurship sectors, and designed to cross the lines of single-discipline studies.
Dr Susan L Karamanian, Dean of CL, said: 'Each of the two degrees is designed to address Qatar's current legal and business trends, and thus equip Qatari and international graduates with the tools to work in top level positions in government, law firms, multinational organisations, and the judiciary.
'We invite prospective students with an interest in pursuing their graduate studies in law to attend the session to obtain detailed information about the degrees and the admissions requirements, and have their questions thoroughly answered.
The programmes are offered in English by renowned academics and practitioners recognised in their fields of expertise, who will be available to answer specific questions regarding the curriculum. Attendees will also have the chance to meet our admissions team to discuss programmes and application requirements.
CL introduced the LLM in International Law and Foreign Affairs and an LLM in International Economics and Business Law degrees this May at a university-wide event, which garnered the interest of more than 400 potential applicants in Qatar. The college was established to provide highly selective and demanded programmes that assist and align with Qatar's national developmental goals, as well as the aspirations of key sectors and industries.
HBKU's College of Law offers multidisciplinary graduate programmes that equip students with the skills to navigate complex civil, common, and Sharia law systems. The college's Juris Doctor (JD) programme is the first graduate law degree of its kind offered in the region and is now offered in parallel with the college's LLM degrees.
The information session will be in Conference Room 1 at Minaratein from 6pm. Intrested participants can find details about the information session and to register to attend via the HBKU website at https://www.hbku.edu.qa/en
