Saudi Arabia's Justice Minister, Walid Al-Samaani, presided over a ceremony marking a significant milestone: the graduation of 3,000 lawyers who successfully completed the 2024 qualification programme.

The ceremony served as a culmination of their extensive training and preparation for legal practice. Minister Al-Samaani expressed his delight in welcoming the new generation of legal professionals. He specifically highlighted their crucial role in propelling the Kingdom's ambitious goals – a legislative, institutional and digital transformation – all generously supported by King Salman bin Abdulaziz and meticulously overseen by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In his address, the minister announced the launch of a vital initiative – "Achieving Quality in Judicial Upskilling." The initiative forms a key component of the National Transformation Programme. The programme's objectives are multifaceted: to elevate legal standards within the Kingdom, reinforce a focus on preventative justice and ultimately improve the quality of judicial services available to all.

He emphasised the significant role these graduates will play, calling them the "cornerstone of the justice system" due to their well-honed expertise and legal skills.

The minister also commended the comprehensive advancements being made at all levels of the legal system. These advancements prioritise safeguarding the rights of individuals and aligning practices with the best international standards. These efforts, he declared, have positioned the Kingdom as a leader in the global legal field.
