Dean’s Message

Welcome to the faculty of Shari’a and law!

The Faculty of Sharia and Law has been the niche of rights and justice since its inception, spreading awareness of legal culture in the practical reality of Somalia. This prestigious faculty of Sharia and Law at Benadir University was established in 2009 with the aim of excellence in jurisprudential, legal studies, and scientific research.

Since its inception, the faculty has endeavoured to activate its capabilities and abilities to enrich the experiences of its students based on the scientific and intellectual experiences of its professors. This is based on all scientific and technological methods, as well as effective consultative visions for serving all sectors and disciplines.

Our faculty is characterized by a selection of professors of Sharia and law among the members of the teaching staff at the university and an integrated administrative team that implements the strategic plans of the faculty with all proficiency.

The faculty is proud to be one of the faculties that seeks to consolidate the foundations of Sharia and law and to develop the competencies capable of understanding the drafting of the legislation and assimilate its theories in all branches of law and Islamic jurisprudence through lectures, scientific seminars, and conferences held in the field of Sharia and law sciences. In addition, it also launched a postgraduate program in Sharia and Law Sciences through a partnership agreement with the International University of Africa in Sudan in 2016.

Therefore, as the dean of the faculty of Shari’a and law, I take this opportunity to welcome everyone who meets our admission requirements to join us at Benadir University.
