Dr Ibrahim Al-Hudaithy is Dean of the Prince Sultan University School of Law and has launched the first legal training for women law graduates in Saudi Arabia. A Durham Law School graduate, Al-Hudaithy’s new programme launches with 25 women for a four-week programme breaking new ground in a major first for women in Saudi Arabia.

 

Durham has broken ground in advancing women in the law within Saudi Arabia before. In 2013, Durham graduate Raya Al-Khatib became the fifth woman to be granted a license to practice law in Saudi Arabia following her graduation from Durham University’s Law School.

 

Professor Thom Brooks, Dean of Durham Law School, said: ‘Our School is proud to see its graduates breaking new ground for women practicing law in Saudi Arabia and leading from the front’.
