Saudi law team gets right verdict in Kuwait ‘trial’

A team from Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s law department recently finished second in an Arabic moot court competition held at Kuwait International Law School.
The academic competition has teams of students from different law schools acting as advocates, and making written and spoken arguments to simulate a criminal law case.
Arabic moot court competitions have been hosted annually by one of the Arab universities in the region for the past five years. Thirteen teams representing different Arab countries took part in the Kuwait contest.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s major competencies include communication in both English and Arabic in professional and social situations; the ability to use modern technologies to acquire information, solve problems and produce planned results; the ability to reason logically and creatively to make informed and responsible decisions; the ability to perform professional responsibilities effectively in both local and international contexts; and being able to work effectively with others to accomplish tasks and achieve group goals.
The core competencies are a required part of curriculum for all students during their first two years in the college program. These competencies are evident on and off campus through student interaction with faculty, staff and others. This enables students to be successful in their chosen field and to contribute to the development of their communities.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University, located in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest private universities in the Kingdom.
The university aims at educating the “whole” person; it recognizes that success in the world depends not only on knowledge of a specific academic discipline, but also on a broader set of skill and abilities.
