One of the best faculties of law in Palestine, the Faculty of Law at An-Najah National University has advantages over other faculties in the country because it combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience.
The role of Faculty of Law is not limited to making it possible to acquire theoretical legal knowledge and experience but also to prepare students for the job market after graduation. To these ends, the faculty offers a wide variety of courses as well as curricular and extracurricular activities which all are geared towards training students to practice legal work in the most professional way. It also has a legal clinic which has recently become a full- fledged course in which students build their legal personalities.
The faculty has also agreements and memos of understanding with civil society institutions such as AMAN (Coalition for Accountability and Integrity), and Al-Haq (a non-governmental human rights organization).
These MOUs are based on an exchange of experiences and consultation pertinent to reinforcement of pillars of justice in the Palestinian society. The faculty has also ratified agreements with a number of counterpart faculties at Palestinian universities. Joint graduate programs have been established with them.
In addition to the legal clinic, the Faculty of Law has a moot court, which enables students to hold mock trials and keep abreast of developments in judiciary and legal corps.
The Faculty of Law also plays a distinctive role in the justice sector in Palestine.It has forged ties with the local community and partners within the justice sector. The faculty has concluded a number of memorandums with the Higher Judicial Council concerning students’ visits to courts and lecturing inside court rooms. It has also invited a number of judges to conduct lectures and discussion groups with students.
In addition to partnerships with Palestinian universities, the faculty has made similar partnerships with some Arab and European universities. In charge of the academic process in the faculty of law are a cadre of qualified law professors in different law fields. They are all graduates from prestigious universities. All these advantages have made the faculty of law one of the best choices for those seeking innovation and excellence in legal knowledge and practical experience.
