The In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee, the Olympic Coun­cil of Asia, and the As­so­ci­a­tion of Na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tees are co­op­er­at­ing with QOC for this course. Speak­ing at the launch, Al Kuwari said that they were proud to get ap­proval to of­fer the pro­gramme, the first of its kind in the Mid­dle East. The Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral said the need for such ed­u­ca­tion was re­alised given the in­creas­ing num­ber of in­ci­dents in the re­gion that re­quire le­gal ex­perts in sports law. He noted that the first year will see the cur­ricu­lum of­fered in English, the fol­low­ing years will then see it of­fered in Ara­bic. The hope is that this will raise aware­ness on the le­gal side of sports re­gion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. It could also help par­tic­i­pants present le­gal cases to re­gional and in­ter­na­tional en­ti­ties. A to­tal of 14 peo­ple can en­rol in the one-year pro­gramme.
