Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) Authority signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Qatar University’s College of Law, which aims at the planning and development of new courses on financial markets, guest lecturing, and contributing to legal publications by the College on Qatari law.

The MoU, which was signed at QFC premises, covers all aspects of cooperation between the QFC Authority’s Legal Department and the College of Law.

On the signing of the MoU, Yousuf Mohamed al-Jaida, QFC Authority CEO said, “This agreement reflects our commitment in investing in Qatar’s youth and in turn strengthening and enlarging the talent pool available to the commercial and financial sector in Qatar”.

He said, “As part of our commitment to the Qatar National Vision 2030, we are dedicated to provide college students with the tools they require to positively benefit the local economy upon graduation.”

Speaking on behalf of the Qatar University, Dr Mohamed bin Abdulaziz al-Khulaifi, dean, College of Law, said, “The College of Law at Qatar University is committed to raise legal awareness among the community and to foster an excellent research environment that stimulates creativity and innovation through collaborations with academic organisations from the private and public sectors. The MoU with QFC falls within this vision of the college of Law and its mission to provide the society with highly qualified law graduates who can serve in the different sectors of the legal profession. This agreement will also support the efforts conducted by the State of Qatar in diversifying the sources of economy and being the major business hub in the region.”

The agreement with the College of Law follows a MoU signed between QFC Authority, QU and the ‘Big Four’ accounting firms earlier in the year, which successfully enhanced cooperation amongst the involved entities through the development and delivery of a tax awareness training programme for QU students.
