He discussed the court's supportive role to the jury as it’s not considered a corrective or a mere oversight role in case of law violation, it’s a supporting role to arbitral tribunal authorized to adjudicate the dispute. This role is linked to the arbitral dispute in all its stages. Therefore, relationship between the court originally competent to consider the dispute and the arbitral tribunal is complementary relationship, each complements the other according to the rules of law to achieve better justice.

By the end, the committee of thesis supervisor and chairman of the committee Dr. Yousef Shendi, internal examiner from the Arab American University Dr. Ahmed Abu Zeina and external examiner from An-Najah University Dr. Ghassan Khaled, decided to give the student Mohammad Al-Atrash Master degree.
