The College of Law at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) held a Virtual Graduate Studies Information Session for future students, both from Qatar and further afield, on February 16. Interested students were able to engage with Dr. Susan L. Karamanian, dean of the College of Law, and faculty members, to learn about the curriculum and research-intensive graduate programs, which all have a strong international and comparative law focus. Highlighting the pathways to develop their legal skills and gain professional experience both in and outside the classroom, faculty members gave an overview of the Juris Doctor (JD) degree, the first-of-its-kind graduate law degree in the MENA region, and the college’s two LLM programs in International Economic and Business Law and International Law and Foreign Affairs. Participants were given the opportunity to connect with the HBKU admissions team to better understand essential application requirements. The virtual event was an extension of a series of information sessions held by the university, across all six colleges, this academic year.
The deadline for Qatari nationals and residents who wish to apply to HBKU’s wide-ranging programs is March 15, 2021.
