BERLIN, Dec. 2 (SEE) – Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the German University in Cairo (GUC) Dr. Ashraf Mansour said that the GUC formed an advisory board for Faculty of Law and Legal Studies that includes 13 senior German figures topped by Minister of Justice and European Affairs in Baden-Württemberg Guido Wolf and Christian Democratic Union (CDU) member of parliament Stefan Kaufmann.
Addressing a press conference in Berlin, Mansour noted that the step aims to make the faculty’s graduates possess the required skills to work in Egypt and Europe, adding that the curriculum of faculties of law had been changed to include laws on the environment, cyber-crime, immigration, international trade, representation in the international forums, and multilateral criminal cases.
The advisory board will convene twice a year; one in Egypt and another meeting in Germany, according to Mansour. He underscored that it is set to discuss developing the faculty’s curriculum and mechanisms of practical training.
“One of the most important goals of the faculty is to make sure students acquire necessary skills and knowledge in order to work at regional and international institutions in addition to dealing with all types of cases such as investment and multi-national cases,” the GUC chairman said.
“The faculty aims to contribute to putting legislation in all legal disciplines in Egypt,” he pointed out, saying that German professors taught the GUC’s faculty of law students the last term.
