The College of Law and Public Policy (CLPP) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) recently hosted The Right Honorable Dr. José Raúl Torres Kirmser, Minister-President of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Republic of Paraguay. President Kirmser also holds the positions of President of the Judicial Supreme Council and President of the Civil Chamber at the Supreme Court of Paraguay. In a lecture before faculty, students, and invited guests, President Kirmser discussed the role of the Supreme Court of Paraguay and its jurisdiction. He responded to questions concerning judicial independence and the rights of indigenous peoples. President Kirmser’s visit to Qatar followed the agreement signed last October between Qatar and Paraguay to expand bilateral relations and engage in collaborative commitments. CLPP regularly invites leading local and international experts to share their expertise and perspectives on topics of interest and global relevance. The college offers a graduate Juris Doctor (JD) degree, which equips students with the skills to identify and address complex problems using civil law, common law and Sharia principles.
