The “Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Initiatives for Legal Excellence” are visionary. Being designed to develop the long-term knowledge and skills of the UAE’s legal and judicial community for the benefit of both the legal profession and the public. The DIFC Courts strongly support this strategic programme through our successful new Academy, which offers training in our Courts’ common law systems and practices to Emirati and other lawyers in Dubai.
Dubai Government Human Resource Department is proud to be part of these leading initiatives, as it takes part in organizing the program of legal scholarships and educational grants. Our participation interprets our continuous commitment towards the enhancement of knowledge and support and the empowerment of Emirati legal competencies. It also emphasizes the principal of cooperative collaboration and integration within Dubai’s Government Sector. This program has been distinctively featured as a real link for sharing information as well as cultural and academic knowledge because it gives our students the opportunity to study the legal traditions and practices of developed and well-established communities in this domain. There is no doubt that civilizations flourish and develop by means of interacting and communicating with other civilizations, acquiring from accumulated human experiences and knowledge, and this is exactly what our scholarships and grants program provides for our law students.
Dubai Government Human Resource Department is not only proud of participating in such initiatives, but we are also committed to reinforce them. The best we can do for this purpose is to do our best to make the legal program of scholarships and grants successful in order to be a good example for others, to promote intercultural programs and to provide legal entities with excellent Emirati competencies.
May God crown all our efforts related to these initiatives with success.
With the aim of developing a promising legal and judiciary future and believing in the importance of legal scientific research, “Maktoum Bin Mohammed Initiatives for Legal Excellence” were launched. The initiatives include various aspects, presented in different ways, but they are all designed to promote elevated legal thinking in theory and practice. The Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Legal Scientific Research Competition for law students is a step in that direction. The competition is the culmination of the close collaboration of Dubai Courts with the Faculty of Law at the University of United Arab Emirates. It is an annual scientific research competition held for the 3rd year between the students of the UAE faculties of law with regard to various legal subjects. Thanks to Dubai Courts for these great initiatives aimed at the development of legal excellence under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Judicial Council.
