Amman- 13 November 2019

Students from the School of Applied Humanities and Languages visited the highest court in Jordan-the Court of Cassation- on November 7th, 2019. The aim of the visit was to introduce the students to the functions and responsibilities of the court.

Judge Mohamad Beik Al Homsi- Court of Cassation Vice-President- welcomed the students and gave them a brief overview of the general tasks and roles of the court in the Kingdom. This includes its role as a supervisory side in terms of monitoring and amending legal matters and laws. These tasks entail the amendment of previous laws and the approval of new laws as per the recommendation of the Kingdom's Judicial Council and the approval of His Majesty King Abdullah II.

Thereafter, the students were given the chance to ask questions about how the court influences political and civil legal cases according to the legal decisions issued by its judges.

At the end of the visit, the students were invited to a brief tour of the court by visiting each department and learning more about how legal decisions are processed, handled, and archived after they are received from various courts.

Consequently, the visit gave the students an insight on how important the Jordanian judicial system is in relation to society and the influence it has on the country's political stability and national security.
