Muscat, Oman




The Omani Legal Force Program is a national program that aims to develop the skills of Omani lawyers in the legal field until they become international lawyers, the program also aims to train Omani lawyers in the commercial law aspect largely. The programme is divided into 3 distinct phases (Legal English – 6 months; Essential legal skills – 8 months; Deep dive phase – 6 months) . The aim of the programme is to prepare you for the local and international legal market by giving you practical skills that enhance the theoretical training you received at your university. The seminars and workshops have been designed in such a way that require you to solve legal issues on your own or in groups. An important point to note is that all training are in English, this enhances general English skills you already have by making you aware of legal English importance, and how it should be used when communicating with clients or other law professionals. Specific technical skills will also be studies throughout the course and in phase 3 of the programme you will go through a deep dive in general business law alongside regulatory bodies and specific legal standards and pitfalls in construction and oil/gas industries.
