College of Law

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

College of Law achieved so many goals during the last few years and it is now consolidated as a unique Law programme in Bahrain.

The revised Law curriculum, developed in cooperation with our esteemed members of the College Advisory Committee and discussed with representatives of foreign universities and members of the Bahraini legal community is now fully operational from the AY 2017/2018.  All law courses have been mapped against the National Qualification Framework and the Qualification Placement application has been submitted.

The international practical learning experience through the participation in 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 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 witness the fit 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 presentations in international conferences. Law students get also involved in research projects in order 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.
