Career opportunities

Opportunities for law graduates will increase dramatically in the run-up to Expo 2020 in matters involving Forex transactions, business setup and legal outsourcing. In particular, “in-house practice” opportunities in sectors including banking, finance and insurance institutions, especially in Dubai.

 

Students with UAE experience are in high demand and gain an advantage over others with exposure limited to a local environment. Students with exposure to Dubai will find employment easily in the areas of conveyancing, commercial arbitration, and intellectual property rights.

 

Having an Amity University Dubai law degree means you can appear for clients at the DIFC courts and in Indian courts. Students can look to the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) for opportunities similar to those found in Free Zones.

 

Amity University Dubai’s law programme includes key elements for aspiring students to write the examinations of the Bar Council of India and other international examinations such as Qualified Lawyer Transfer Test (QLTT), UK, which students are encouraged to do.
