College of Law

The College of Law started its journey as a department within the College of Sharia and Islamic Studies at Qatar University. The intention to create a separate new College of Law emerged during the deanship of Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi at the College of Shariaa that was over the period preceding year 1990. During this period, the decision to create a new specialization in Law was taken in 1981, however, it only took effect after one year referring to the dean’s decision number 3 dated 13th October, 1984. Consecutively, a committee was formed for this purpose and included Professor Mohamed Zaki Abd al-Barr from the department of Fiqh and Law at that time, Dr. Jamaluddin Attiyah and Dr. Haroun Al Jamal, the University’s legal expert at that time. The committee presented a comprehensive study which made a resolution to offer a dual specialization in Law and Sharia that is based on comparative studies that comply with the local Qatari legislations.

In pursuit of a vision to embed the rule of law in Qatar’s development, Decree No. 4 was issued in 1993 to establish an academic department of legal education. Legal studies was originally part of the College of Sharia and Islamic Studies. As the country’s development gathered momentum, the need for expansion in legal education became inevitable, hence the establishment of an autonomous College of Law in 2006.

In about a decade of this bold decision, the College of Law has grown exponentially. The current student population is about 800 with faculty strength of 50 highly educated and diverse academics supported by a team of highly motivated administrative staff. A range of programs have been introduced to enrich the curriculum and achieve the college’s mission. These include the Center for Energy and Sustainability Law to serve as platform for engagement with industry, Externship program to give our students a taste of practical work prior to graduation, a Legal Writing program that advances the writing and research skills of our students, clinics in Domestic Violence, Human Rights, Environment and many other initiatives.

The teaching methods, curricula and research programs have been revamped resulting in over a million dollar research grants, engagement with the community and industry and the graduation of high quality students. In tandem with this growth, a new bespoke multi-purpose building, including a law library and moot courtrooms, is being erected exclusively for the Law College. The college is also poised to start new graduate programs in both Arabic and English.
