Abstract

This article argues that it is important for Saudi lawyers to be familiar with certain aspects of English law (alongside Shari'ah and Saudi laws). Accordingly, it firstly discusses the importance of English law in international business practice and then briefly presents its current use in Saudi Arabia, and the Middle East in general. This study is mainly based on teaching and studying English law at Dar al-Hekma, a private college for women in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It examines how Dar al-Hekma students in particular can benefit in their future practice from studying English law.

Keywords: English commercial law, Saudi law, Saudi lawyers, Shari'ah, Saudi higher education, Saudi arbitration
