Female Lawyers

Female lawyers to be allowed to practise in Saudi Arabia


Dubai: Women lawyers will soon be allowed to practise in Saudi Arabia to represent female clients in courtrooms, a media report has said.

The Ministry of Justice has said that women will be issued a restrictive form of license which will give them access to certain areas of courts and in cases in which they are representing female clients only, Arabic daily Al Madina reported quoting a senior official.

The announcement came after the ministry's recommendation that the best way of protecting women's rights in various cases would be by allowing them to be represented in the court by a female lawyer.

If the proposal is passed by the concerned authorities, women will have a certain section within the courts that will be solely allocated for their cases and their representative female lawyers, said the daily.
