I am pleased to welcome you to the Legal Affairs Department’s website which is the Department’s online window to all the visitors around the world. Through this website we try to disseminate the Department’s mission and realize some of the Department’s objectives. The Department of Legal Affairs plays a significant role in SQU; it conducts legal studies and provides legal opinion on matters referred to it. It also represents the University in courts and other legal forums or institutions. The Department reviews all contracts, agreements and memorandum of understanding which the University signs with local and international institutions. The Decision Section in the Legal Affairs Department drafts and reviews various types of administrative decisions. Taking into consideration that respecting university rules and regulations is the responsibility of all stakeholders of the university and rest of Omani community. The Department is keen to provide and foster legal awareness and encourage rule of law  in the Omani society. The Department strives to fulfil its duties and achieve its objectives, but this requires all concerned parties and stakeholders to come forward with suggestions to improve the legal services offered by the Department.
