The Institute of Law

Established in 1993, the Birzeit University’s Institute of Law (IoL) contributes to the modernisation of the Palestinian legal structures and building human capacities, both at the academic and practical levels. The IoL is widely recognised as a leading institution contributing to the upgrading and consolidating the Palestinian legal system.

The IoL serves as a focal centre for information, scholarly and applied research and continuing legal education. It has extensive international connections, which have greatly contributed to supporting staff members with outstanding experience in several areas, including legislative drafting, legal information technology, and continuing legal and judicial education.
