About College of Law and Public Policy

Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) College of Law and Public Policy (CLPP) aspires to be 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. 

HBKU’s College of Law and Public Policy (CLPP) addresses this need by offering training to graduate students from a range of disciplines in the skills needed to understand the diverse legal systems – civil, common, and Sharia – that inform Qatari law and that govern complex events and transactions, both in the region and internationally. The college's Juris Doctor (JD) program is the first graduate law degree of its kind to be offered in the MENA region.

HBKU’s CLPP has further developed executive training to increase the visibility of the college to government and corporate leaders, both locally and globally, in order to foster the growth and connectedness of the college and to provide broad opportunities for students and future graduates.
