I am pleased to welcome our students, wishing them success and progress.
Studying law and introducing it to academic institutions remains urgent and necessary, where students receive knowledge, skills, and values related to the establishment of justice, equality, defense of human rights and fundamental freedoms, acceptance of others, and the rejection of violence and extremism.
Our school mission is to set off a new generation of distinguished Egyptian and Arab jurists through advanced legal programs, effective educational systems, and applied training with the help of competent faculty members and centers of excellence in the fields of legal research.
To achieve this mission, the university dedicated an advanced building for the school that contains spacious and model teaching halls. The school has also provided a moot court equipped with all necessary equipment to link the theoretical side with the practical side for our students’ convenience and provide them with the empirical skills of law.
Best wishes for success.
