The College of Law (CL) is a world-class provider of legal education with an international reputation for quality and innovation in teaching and research.
Owing to its position at a global crossroads in terms of culture, business and geopolitics, Qatar is at the heart of a region that requires leaders who can manage multi-faceted relationships that span different legal systems and who have a command of a wide range of skills.
