City, University of London and the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Dispute Resolution Authority Academy of Law have signed a Memorandum of Understanding. The memorandum will enable the two organisations to explore the possibility of joint educational activities in the region.

City, University of London currently offers an internationally acclaimed Cass Executive MBA (EMBA), three MSc programmes in Aviation Management as well as tailor-made executive education, short courses and business services including consulting from its Dubai premises in the DIFC.

The Academy of Law was established in 2015 as an independent entity to provide quality education and support to the UAE legal community. Its core functions include training and regulating lawyers, publishing and disseminating information, hosting events for the legal community and providing free legal advice for people in need.

Ahead of the signing ceremony, Professor Carl Stychin, Dean of The City Law School said:

“I visited the Academy of Law last year and was impressed by their superb facilities and outstanding staff. We are excited by the possibility of working together in partnership and look forward to exploring areas of collaboration. At The City Law School we recognise the strength of our international brand.  The signing of this MoU gives our two organisations the opportunity to further develop our educational provision to mutual advantage.”

Professor Stanton Newman, Vice-President (International) at City said:

“City, University of London is a Global university and establishing strategic relationships with international partners, such as the Academy of Law in Dubai, are central to the University’s Vision & Strategy 2026. Through our Internationalisation Strategy we will build further international linkages and support the development of a global community that benefits from and contributes to City’s international standing. We will also look to extend the range of opportunities by which our students can develop global competencies through study and work experience in international settings.”

David Gallo, Director of the Academy of Law at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), commented:

“We are delighted to launch our relationship with City, University of London as part of our strategy to provide top tier legal and business education in the Middle East.  This collaboration is an important step in our mission of preparing professionals for international commercial roles by delivering local education with global value.”
