The launch of the initiatives’ website provides a link between the initiatives, the legal community and law students in law schools in the UAE, and the GCC and other Arab countries, said Al-Mansouri.
“The Al Maktoum Initiatives aim to create a legally well-versed generation, enhance capabilities of persons engaged in the judicial field, and motivate pioneering in legal works. These initiatives are the first of their kind in the Middle East, and are addressed to different categories related to the legal and judicial community,” he said.
“This includes all of the initiatives, including the Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Moot Court Competition, Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Legal Scientific Research Competition, Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Legal Scholarships Program, and Dubai International Financial Centre Courts Academy.”
The initiatives also include the Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Program for Judicial Researches, which aims to motivate and enhance legal scientific studies and research in the UAE judicial field. This program is aimed at members of the judicial authorities in the UAE, and involves conducting research about procedural and substantive judicial issues.
“The initiatives further embrace the Maktoum Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Program for Legal and Judicial Conferences, which is aimed at supporting and sponsoring the organisation of legal and judicial conferences and seminars internationally,” said Al Mansouri.
“The programme discusses a series of topics related to the latest developments within this stratum, and changes in specialisations related to all legal and judicial aspects locally and internationally. It is intended to highlight the development of litigation procedures, exchange global knowledge and transfer of different experiences, and review important international experiences in the legal and judicial field,” he said.
Yassir Al-Naeem, managing sirector of Al Taqnyah Business Solutions, the developer of the Al Maktoum Initiatives’ website, stated: “The website, which we are pleased to launch today with our partners Dubai Courts, will serve the different needs of those interested in the initiatives, from members of the public, participants and those intimately involved in the courts’ business." - TradeArabia News Service
