A number of students of the College of Judicial Studies and Regulations participated in the Student Commercial Arbitration Competition for the Arab Gulf Countries, which was organized by the Saudi Center for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA).

The SCCA Arabic Moot (GCC edition) competition was held during the period from October 2020 to April 2021, with the participation of 54 teams of students from the colleges of Shari`ah and Law at 36 universities in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

The participating team from the two sections of the college reached the competition finals, under the supervision of a specialized team of academic staff members at the university led by Dr. Hasan Al-Matrafi and with the membership of Ms. Nurah Al-Shuraim and Mr. Osama Al-Qannas. The student Muhammad Al-Ghamdi won sixth place for the best advocate in the competition while the student Ahmad Al-Ansari ranked eighth.

Meanwhile, the Vice Dean of the College, Prof. Nurah Al-Rashud, honored the students participating in the competition: Modi Sa`d Al-Zuwaihiri, Latifah Riyadh Al-Manea, Jawahir Ahmad Awaji, Shahd Ibrahim Al-Utaibi, Maha Adnan Al-Sa`di, and Amani Abdullah Al-Harbi, stressing the college’s keenness to train its students and harness their knowledge skills acquired from the scientific courses with a high degree of professionalism, to raise the level of their competence, both professionally and personally, and to empower them to plead cases in accordance with the requirements and features of the work environment.

It is noteworthy that the Saudi Center for Commercial Arbitration organizes competitions for the students of the colleges of Shari`ah, Law and Regulations in the universities of the Gulf countries in which the participants compete to plead a hypothetical arbitration case that simulates international trade cases. It also aims to contribute to highlighting the competence of the Saudi cadres at the personal, knowledge, regulatory and legal levels, to enable them to advance further in the competition and plead before international arbitration bodies.
