Courtroom staff to embark on new programme designed to improve judicial performance.
Judges and staff working in the Commercial Court in the UAE are to be put through a new training scheme in a bid to improve performance.
The steering committee of the Abu Dhabi Commercial Court announced on Monday that it had approved a new training programme for judges and employees.
Sultan Saeed Al Badi, Abu Dhabi Judicial Department Undersecretary and head of the committee, said that the new programme will play a major role in enhancing the productivity of the staff of the Commercial Court.
The training will be delivered by international experts and the initiative is part of a larger programme that has been designed along international best practices, reported news agency WAM.
The programme, which will start in the first week of October, will tackle topics like case management, alternative dispute resolution, construction contracts, banking operations, complicated court cases, insurance and brokerages.
The Department has adopted global best practices by visiting advanced countries like Singapore and Ireland, in an effort to develop the Commercial Court in Abu Dhabi in line with the laws in Abu Dhabi and the UAE in general.
