Selected candidates will be instructed by veteran judges
Abu Dhabi Global Market Courts, the regulatory authority governing laws in the emirate’s financial free zone, has rolled out a practical course for Emirati attorneys who aspire to become judges.
The Emirati Judge Programme is open to attorneys with significant experience, tweeted ADGM Courts.
Selected candidates will be instructed by veteran judges and the Chief Justice of ADGM will oversee the training programme.
The programme will consists of four modules, which include intensive studying, considerable practical legal and judicial training in common law, and an emphasis on commercial law.
The first two Emirati lawyers have already been welcomed into the programme after scoring well on their assessments, which is an entry criterion.
The programme is supported by the Scholarships Office, an affiliate of the Ministry of Presidential Affairs.
