The Department of LawThe Bachelor of Arts in Law marks the first bilingual undergraduate degree program not only in the eastern province but kingdom-wide as well. The Law Program provides a dynamic, engaging, student-centered, quality competency-based, innovative and globally-oriented curriculum that leads current and prospective male and female students to understand what it takes to think, act, and react as professional legal consultants and lawyers with ethical and social responsibilities. We offer a unique and challenging learning environment that stimulates students to consider the law as a way of thinking and reading the word and the world.
Our bilingual law program, with its focus on skills development, prepares our students to function respectively and responsively in a global society. The program, with its myriad of courses, gives students the opportunity to learn about national and international trends in the world of law. This approach requires a diligent desire and willingness from students to understand and enter into the legal world of the different other. Our law students are scaffolded to make this entry, which accounts for a great depth of scholarly inquiry. In this sphere of influence, PMU bilingual law program provides future workforce with a plethora of case studies and content that have the potential to connect the national with the international. The program implements a constructivist approach to teaching and learning that leads students to develop the critical thinking attributes of lawyers and researchers.
