As part of our commitment towards our students to be exposed to the practical side of their academic curriculum, the Faculty of Law at BUE is proud to announce that, on Monday 14th June 2021, DY3 Students, as part of the Egyptian and English Corporation Law module Coursework, had presented their drafted legal advice on the procedures, requirements, requested documents and governmental fees that are legally required to incorporate a company of their own choice in accordance with the Egyptian Corporation Law (Law no. 159 Y1981 and its executive regulation); and any other related laws and/or regulations.
They were, additionally, requested to advise on the needed permits and licenses that the to-be-established company (of their own choice) required to obtain and hold to opera in Egypt.
Moreover, they were asked to make a visit to the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI) and any other relevant authorities to collect information, data and documents to advise accordingly.
For that purpose, and to ensure a comprehensive and professional assessment for students, Students were split to number of groups and they presented their legal advice, as if they were meeting a real client, before a panel composed of number of experts including: Dr. Marwa Zein (Egyptian and English Corporation Law module leader), Mr. Mohamed Zaher (a Senior Associate at Zaki Hashem and Partners Law-firm (ZH&P)), Mrs. Reewan Kaman (a Lawyer at the Incorporation Department – GAFI) and Mr. Ahmed Yassien (a Lecturer Assistant at the Faculty of Law – BUE and the tutorial convener of the Egyptian and English Corporation Law module).
The experience was hugely successful as witnessed by the positive comments received either from the Panel which applauded the Students’ performance, efforts and the accuracy of the presented information; and, from Students, themselves, who did enjoy the experience and were exposed to a lot of useful and practical information.
We, at Faculty of Law – BUE, would like to thank and give a special credit to Mr. Mohamed Zaher of Zaki Hashem & Partner and Mrs. Reewan Kamal of GAFI for their efforts and valuable discussions made with Students, and to recognize their contribution to the success of the day.
A special credit should be given to Zaki Hashem & Partners Lawfirm (one of the top-tier, prestigious and long-established law-firms in Egypt and MENA region) for their positive response to contribute in the Panel.
A special credit, as well, should be given to GAFI (The Egyptian Corporate Authority) for facilitating the visit of Students and being very cooperative with them which reflects the professionalism of GAFI’s officers.
Last, and not least, we would like to recognize and applaud the extraordinary performance and efforts made by DY3 students at our Faculty and we would like to wish them a bright future.
*n.b: we will tag in this post Dr. Marwa Zein, Ahmed Yassien, Mohamed Zaher, Reewan Kamal, Zaki Hashem & Partners Lawfirm and General Authority for Investment and Free Zones.
