Welcome to Alfaisal Law School – an international community of students and scholars with a unique comparative perspective to the study of Law.
Since its inception, Alfaisal Law School is considered as a premier regional center for international legal studies and research. Alfaisal Law School brings together leading regional and international scholars, researchers, and members of the legal profession to provide students with a range of transformative experiences, both inside and outside the classroom.
Saudi Arabia has taken the lead in numerous legal developments, such as the codification of Islamic jurisprudence opinions to make Islamic law more accessible and applicable in international trade and finance. Such developments cannot be successful without the use of legal research in comparative law to cover many areas of legal studies. This is the basis of the innovative approach of Alfaisal Law School to the study of Law.
Our LLB program includes the core subjects of key jurisdictions that will enhance Alfaisal University’s position as a valued partner with well-known universities and professional bodies in some common law jurisdictions. Consequently, the program will permit our students to pursue opportunities in the legal profession, not only within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia but in other jurisdictions as well.
At the same time, our students will gain an Islamic-Saudi perspective, a comparative perspective, and an international perspective in all subjects taught within our law program. Our students will have the opportunity to work with the Saudi government and its agencies, at local and international law firms, as well as with regional and international organizations since the international law and diplomacy track prepares our graduates to work in this field.
When you pursue your studies at Alfaisal Law School, you will join a judicious student body that is deeply committed to studying law and developing life-long friendships as well as professional relationships. Immersion in legal studies at Alfaisal Law School permits students to delve into career opportunities, serve the public, and discuss the most important topics of the day.
I invite you to explore all aspects of our Alfaisal Law School through our website. We are always looking for the next generation of students to join our future LLB and research programs, and we would welcome the opportunity to talk further with you about studying at Alfaisal Law School.
On behalf of all, here at Alfaisal Law School, we look forward to meeting you soon.
