The British University in Dubai and The University of Law Launch Strategic Partnership

The British University in Dubai and The University of Law Launched Strategic Partnership.

The two institutions aim to establish a joint Centre for Legal Education and Research based at BUiD’s campus, aimed at serving the legal community in Dubai and the MENA region. Set to commence operations in autumn 2024, the Centre will offer professional programmes and initiatives that enhance legal education, professional training and applied research within the UAE.

This partnership introduces a comprehensive array of initiatives through the Centre, addressing the needs of the growing legal sector in the UAE and beyond. This includes the launch of a bespoke professional training service to support the ongoing professional development of legal practitioners in the region. Leveraging ULaw’s expertise, the Centre will offer preparatory courses for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), necessary for those aiming to qualify as solicitors in England and Wales.

The Centre will also develop a new pathway for the BUiD undergraduate Law programme by integrating the principles of Common Law in the current curriculum, preparing students for further studies and potential qualification in English Law. In addition, this Centre will spearhead the development of joint specialist academic law programmes and applied legal research initiatives, fostering a culture of innovation and thought leadership in the legal field.
