Representatives from the Faculty of Law and the Legal Clinic at An-Najah University have participated in a scientific visit to a number of French universities and legal institutions through the Francophone University Agency (AUF).

During the scientific visit, Dr. Naeem Salameh, Dean of the Faculty of Law, and Ms. Safaa Balawi, Legal Clinic Director, had the opportunity to visit The Jean Moulin University Lyon 3, the University of Paris 8, and the Paris Bar Association.

The representatives of these institutions shared their experiences in the establishment of educational legal clinics, the work mechanisms for legal clinics, the challenges they face, and their plans and goals for enhancing legal education and access to justice.

Representatives from various Arab law and law faculties, including Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and Iraq, also participated in the scientific visit. The primary objective of the visit was to foster stronger academic ties between An-Najah University and these institutions, facilitate the exchange of experiences and knowledge, and advance legal education and access to justice in the Arab world.

As part of the scientific visit, representatives from the aforementioned countries were also hosted by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs in France. The meeting focused on the objectives of the “legal clinics” project, which is funded by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and implemented by the Francophone University Agency.
