Message from the Dean

His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Ali bin Ahmad Al-Hudhaifi

All praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, and upon his family and companions and whoever follows his guidance.

The mission of the College of Judicial Studies and Regulations was launched about ten years ago, based on a generous proposal submitted by Sheikh Prof. Saud bin Ibrahim Al-Shuraim, may Allah grant him success. Its official inauguration was held under the auspices of His Eminence the Minister of Education on 2/11/1433 A.H, and consisted of the following two sections:

  1. The Judicial Studies Department
  2. The Regulations Department

The college is advancing with great strides in upgrading the educational system, scientific research, and the university and community-based services in the field of judicial studies and regulations. It is doing this by providing an appropriate and stimulating environment that supports creativity and excellence, in addition to implementing quality standards in its programs, and creating professional plans to achieve the UQU objectives and vision, and Saudi Vision 2030.

This role has actually emerged through the creation of several specific postgraduate-level programs:

In the Department of Judicial Studies:

  1. Doctorate in Judicial Studies
  2. Master's in Judicial Studies
  3. Master's in Administrative Justice
  4. Master's in Personal Status Judiciary

In the Department of Regulations:

  1. Doctorate in Regulations
  2. Master's in Regulations
  3. Higher Diploma in Criminal Sciences
  4. Higher Diploma in Law

This is in addition to three other diplomas that have been approved, as well as the establishment of the Saudi Scientific Waqf Association under the supervision of the college, the housing of the branch of the Saudi Judicial Scientific Society, the foundation of the Judicial Studies and Regulations Student Club, and various other programs currently under preparation and study that will contribute, Allah willing, to driving the wheel of prosperity that our beloved Kingdom has been witnessing in different fields, including Judicial Studies and Regulations.

May Allah grant us success!
