The major of Law provides a programme that is globally oriented, addresses the needs of the local market, and also leads to international careers.

Welcome note from the Dean of the College of Law

The RUW College of Law achieved many goals during the last few years, and it is now consolidated as a unique Law programme in Bahrain. The RUW Law programme has achieved the highest quality standard in Bahrain and received a vote of Confidence by the BQA and it is mapped against the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

The Law programme provides students with a comprehensive legal knowledge at undergraduate level. The programme covers Bahraini Laws and the main international laws with a topical focus on commercial and business law and International Commercial Arbitration. 

The international practical learning experience through the participation in various programs at curricular and extra-curricular level, such as the annual Willem C. Vis Moot Court competition in commercial arbitration has become a regular practice for our Law students, and RUW College of Law has consolidated its experience in hosting the MENA Pre-Moot competition in international commercial arbitration. 

Field trips, guest lectures and an increasing interaction with law firms and legal institutions, through the signature of several agreements with relevant bodies, continue to enrich the development of advocacy skills and employability skills of the Law students. 

High employment rates of the RUW Law graduates are a testimony of the fitness for purpose and readiness to work of our Alumnae.

The research output of College of law academic staff is increasing year by year with publications in reputable international specialized journals, books, and participation in international conferences. Law students get also involved in research projects, to foster a legal research culture in the College.

New and more exciting challenges are yet to come and the whole academic body is fully committed to achieve the best results that our students deserve.
