Mohammad Bashayreh, co-founder of our law firm, has knowledge and experience in the legal aspects of setting up higher education or scientific research institutions, in addition to the pertinent legal procedures and requirements of starting investment and doing business in Jordan. The sector of higher education in Jordan is governed by a particular legislation that leaves broad discretionary powers for the Council of Higher Education and Scientific Research. Thus, in the context of a declared national strategy for higher education and scientific research, instructions, directives, and administrative decisions determine the regulatory requirements and conditions for licensing an institution for higher education or approving (academic and corporate) changes to existing ones.
Mohammad Bashayreh's academic experience and his work as head of the legal department and legal consultant for Yarmouk University have provided him with advanced capacity of advising, as a specialized legal consultant, on the procurement of licenses for higher education institutions or the acquisition of corporate entities owning such licenses.
