The Faculty of Law is one of the first faculties established by Palestine Ahliya University since its foundation in 2007. In a short period, it has gained a distinguished position among Palestinian law faculties and has become a focal point for those interested in obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in law. From the beginning, establishing the Faculty of Law aimed to provide the best Bachelor’s program in law, supported by modern technological tools for theoretical teaching and practical training, to prepare students academically and practically.

The Bachelor’s program offers public and private law courses, focusing on specialized courses that qualify students to pursue further studies in specific legal fields such as civil law, commercial law, administrative and constitutional law, criminal law, and international law. These specializations are essential for meeting the Palestinian community’s and various institutions’ needs to build a state governed by the rule of law. The program aims to contribute to the development of Palestinian legislation, keeping pace with laws in advanced countries, and providing qualified graduates to meet the increasing demands of the justice sector, including the judiciary, the Ministry of Justice, and the public prosecution, as well as legal consultants for various Palestinian government ministries.
