Dean’s Message

A warm welcome to the Abu Dhabi University College of Law.

The College of Law (COL) is very proud of the high-quality degree programs upon which we have built ADU's youngest but fastest-growing college. We currently offer one Bachelor's degree (Bachelor of Law) and two Master's degrees (Master in Public Law and Master in Private Law) taught primarily in Arabic.
Through delivery of interactive, challenging and relevant curricula, the College of Law faculty seeks to achieve several key objectives. As such, we will:

  • Prepare students for the requirements and challenges of a competitive, yet rewarding, career path specifically designed for Emiratis and other Arabic-speaking students;
  • Develop graduates prepared for a diverse job market through provision of curricula primarily delivered in Arabic, but with selected courses delivered in English; 
  • Guarantee academic quality through delivery of an internationally-recognized curricula; and
  • Address students' unique learning styles through dynamic and experiential pedagogic approaches which merge theory and practice in the form of workshops, seminars, debates, moot courts, arbitration, and legal clinics.

My office door is always open. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to the ADU Law community.
