Faculty Programs

Bachelor of Law (LLB)

This law degree program is the country’s first after the civil war, which ended in the 1990s. During and after the war, there was widespread lawlessness and a lack of legal professionals due to mass emigration. This program was created to address these issues and promote the rule of law over anarchy. It aims to produce competent lawyers and leaders who uphold human rights and justice, serving the public, government, and business sectors locally and globally. Amoud University hopes this program will help rebuild the country and advance its legal system.
