BUiD launches construction law course
MSc to meet strong demand for local experts
The British University in Dubai (BUiD) has launched a post-graudate master’s programme in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution.
The course, which is now accepting applications for the February 2010 intake, is designed for practising lawyers, engineers, architects, surveyors and those in other relevant disciplines.
“The construction industry in the Middle East is growing at unprecedented levels, and in today’s economic climate, there is an essential need for experts in the related fields,” said Professor Abdullah Alshamsi, vice-chancellor, The British University in Dubai.
“With the support of the Dubai Courts and leading construction and law organisations, our new MSc in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution will develop combined expertise in law and construction, further developing the local regional talent and providing the necessary knowledge required as a complement to the industry’s rapid development,” he added.
The new programme is offered in association with the Centre of Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at King’s College London.
