Introduction:

Prince Sultan University is the first university in the Kingdom to offer a Law Degree for women in Arabic and English. Not only that, but it is acknowledged that PSU law graduates are sought-after because of their solid academic grounding. Continuing the tradition of academic distinction, PSU now offers a post-graduate degree in Law. The Master Programs of Commercial Law (Coursework and Coursework/Thesis) are aimed to provide graduates with advanced knowledge of laws in commercial spheres. The programs have been designed to equip graduates with research, professional and communication skills that are needed in the local and international job market. The courses offered in the programs are contemporary courses exposing graduates to international dimensions of commercial law. The programs, therefore, would prepare graduates to assume legal positions in private law firms, government agencies, and international institutions.
