Penn State Law Enters Dubai-ous Partnership

For students who have complained about the frigid temperatures of Happy Valley, the Dickinson School of Law offers an exciting opportunity to learn in the Sun.

Penn State has entered into a partnership with the Dubai Judicial Institute. Legal Lions will have the chance to study international law in one of the most prosperous states of the United Arab Emirates. The two schools will also coordinate conferences and faculty exchanges.

“We are committed to fostering and adopting initiatives to build on the potential of law students and welcome the opportunity to work with Penn State Law in what will most certainly be a successful and beneficial partnership,” director general Al Sumaiti said to the National Law Journal.

According to Karen Bysiewicz, the associate dean for graduate and international programs at Penn State, an increase in student interest in the Middle East fostered the union between the two schools.

Dubai’s most noticeable landmark is the tallest building in the world. The Burj Khalifa, named for the country’s ruler the Wonder Wiz of Khalifa, was a prominent setting for last year’s Mission Impossible IV.
