The Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School is assisting with a plan by the Qatar Foundation to establish a law school at Hamad bin Khalifa University in Doha, reports the National Law Journal.
"At the heart of this cooperation is Qatar Foundation's vision to establish a center of learning that will help revitalize legal education in the Middle East, and represent Islamic and Arabic legal traditions in the global dialogue on legal and governance issues," said Mohammad Fathy Saoud, who serves as president of the foundation.
