About Faculty of Law

The Faculty of Law was opened in 1991 under the name of the Faculty of Sharia and Law which was considered one of the two faculties that was first established besides the Faculty of Education. The faculty was established with the purpose of providing the students with the opportunity to pursue their education in this field in the light of the difficult situation in Gaza and Palestine in order to be able to defend their home land and spread justice in Palestine and throughout the world. In 1993, due to the pressing need of specialist in legal study, the duration was reduced to 4 years instead of 5 years. Faculty graduates now occupy different positions in the community in fields of Judiciary, Prosecution, and Attorney, Legal consulting and various Security Agencies.
