Law Faculty to Boost Cooperation with Palestinian Bar Association
Birzeit University’s Faculty of Law and Public Administration on August 22 signed an agreement with the Palestinian Bar Association that will create opportunities in legal education, both academic and practical.
The signing ceremony was attended by faculty dean Asem Khalil and president of the Palestinian Bar Association Hussein Shabanah, as well as a number of lawyers and faculty members.
Khalil said that this agreement formalizes cooperation and coordination between the bar association and the university and ensures law students are an integral part of the justice sector. It will also support the LLM graduate programs in administrative and financial law that Birzeit intends to launch soon.
"According to this memorandum, Birzeit University will provide specialized professors in different areas of law to participate in the discussions on legal research and training of lawyers,” explained Khalil.
President Shabanah welcomed the signing of the memorandum as part of the ongoing cooperation between the bar association and the university, which responds to the needs of the Palestinian justice sector and enhances the capabilities of Birzeit university law students.
