The program aims to bridge a knowledge gap in the legal institutions and justice sector, as well as legal regulations, for law graduates in general and professionals working in legal consultations, judiciary, and justice and to equip them with the necessary knowledge in these sciences and legislations that can significantly impact their performance in their respective fields and contribute to the development of the legal environment in Palestine.

One of the main objectives of the program is to provide specialized graduates in the field of law and the legislations in force in Palestine, as well as various Arab laws and legislations, and to prepare specialized cadres who can rely on themselves and provide expert legal advice in different branches and applications of law.

Moreover, the program aims to strengthen the tools and methodologies of scientific research for students and to qualify them to follow up on research and scientific development at different academic levels. It also seeks to provide legal practitioners, consultants, and judges in the public and private sectors with new legal knowledge relevant to their daily work.

Specifically, the program seeks to establish a specialized intermediate diploma program in law/Judicial Assistant at Palestine Ahliya University. This program enables high school graduates in Palestine and elsewhere, particularly in the southern West Bank governorates (Jerusalem, Hebron, Bethlehem, and Jericho), to continue their studies and obtain an intermediate law/judicial assistant diploma.
