PHD (Honors) Cairo University - Egypt - May 2000
• PhD in International Construction Contract Arbitration. The Thesis discussed infrastructure Project Contracts in Egypt as a developing country adopting the civil law legal culture and containing foreign private entities.
• The main concern of the thesis is to prove the deterioration of administrative contracts in civil law countries. This was done through examining the new legal nature of the contracts and arbitrations. The new conditions of the new administrative contracts were analyzed and concluded that the contracts have a new legal nature. This entailed the use of new mechanisms in the settlement of resulting disputes, especially arbitration, in details (FIDIC form of contracts and ICC arbitration has a special significance in the study).
• The thesis consists of two sections. The first section is a comparative study to the French legal system. The second section is a complete comparative study to the English legal system (this was made possible by living in London for more than one year, as a student in the University of London).
