MoJ boosts women's access with legal practice licenses and jobs
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 07 - 03 - 2019

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) continues to empower women in the work force, emphasizing their roles as MoJ staffers, lawyers, private notaries.
The ministry's new organizational chart initiated a number of roles for women working in justice facilities. They are now working and handling tasks across legal entities. More women are being granted licenses for private notary roles.
"Private notaries can issue and terminate powers of attorney (PoAs), and notarize corporate charters and property conveyances," the ministry explained.
The ministry has recruited 220 women so far since the announcement of competitive exams for jobs last year. Those employees work in several fields, including social and legal research, administration, and software development.
The number of licensed female lawyers has tripled this year compared to previous years. The ministry has granted law practice licenses to 418 female lawyers, trained 3,140 others, and licensed 67 women to be legal representatives of private entities.
The ministry has also rolled out a program aiming to raise women's legal awareness through fairs in various regions, media campaigns, and partnerships with relevant government agencies. — SG
