SEMINARS & CONFERENCES

Laws and regulations together carry several complexities, in the Sultanate of Oman from as adopted and followed as well as the Court Practice perspective. It is not only important for any organization to effectively understand the laws and regulations but also how the changes and amendments in such laws and regulations will impact the organization as well as the key people responsible. SASLO, in addition to providing direct legal advice, in association with its training center, SASLO Legal Training Center (SLTC) has organised several seminars, conferences and workshops open to public at large on various topics of laws.
