Background Information

The rationale for establishing the Bachelor of Laws is based on the findings of the situational analysis conducted by the Zanzibar University in June, 1998 and the review done in 2018.
The situational analysis findings revealed that the majority of the respondents believed that Law and Shariah programme will help to meet the market demands of lawyers, legal officers, legal practitioners, prosecutors, State Attorney, officers working under Mufti’s office, Kadhis office and the office of the Commission for Wakf including workers at the local, regional and national levels.

This programme therefore sets standards for Law and Shariah which are formulated to stimulate the development of academic programmes in the field of Law and Shariah for Bachelor level of education.
The Standards comprises of specific guidelines on programme aims and educational objectives, programme learning outcomes, programme design (including a proposed programme structure), students admission criteria, student assessment method, criteria for academic staff, educational resources and continuous quality improvement.
