Dean's Welcome

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Thanks for visiting the University of Sharjah College of Law website, which has been advancing confidently toward more gains and achievements since the college was established in 2001. The college is the first law college in the United Arab Emirates and has reserved an advanced place among the colleges of law at the Arab and regional levels. In terms of the number and quality of programs offered, it offers a Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degree program.

In addition to the bachelor's program in law in Arabic, the master's program in public and private law, and the doctoral program in public and private law, our college distinguishes itself from its peers by offering two qualitative programs, namely a master's program in air and space law in English, which is the first of its kind in the Arab and Gulf countries, and a bachelor's program in law in English that received academic accreditation and was launched in the fall of 2023/2024. An excellent number of students applied for the program. It is due to the grace of God Almighty, the unlimited support of the senior administration at the university, the sincere will of faculty members with long and distinguished experience, the academic competence accredited by the most prestigious Arab and international universities, as well as its loyal administrative body that supports our dear students' needs.
