Woman pleads cases in Shariah court

Dammam: In an unprecedented event, a second-year female university student has defended her clients at the Shariah court in Alkhobar, local media said. Fatima Al-Amoudi, who is studying law at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, says she received support from the teaching staff at the university to practice her skills through intensive field training.

Fatima, who lives in the Eastern Province, also appreciated the stance of the Shariah Court authorities in the region for allowing her to speak on behalf of her clients while she was still a university student. She said she was given two cases to defend and successfully got rulings in favor of the plaintiffs. Additionally, she received legal inquires from citizens and residents.
