Dubai, UAE, 19 February 2020: As part of its keenness to highlight its main role in preparing and qualifying Emirati nationals as well as finding appropriate opportunities for them in legal and judicial positions, Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI) announced the statistical report of its achievements in 2019.
Publishing statistical reports are important as they raise the efficiency of the justice sector and provide stakeholders, regardless of their location, with actual indicators that reflect DJI’s work. They also help judicial decision-makers in taking decisions that suit their work.
HE Justice Dr Jamal Al Sumaiti, Director General of DJI, commented: “We undertake highly important national tasks and responsibilities, and we must do them in accordance with the highest global standards to provide national institutions with qualified and trained cadres; this is what we have done over the past few years. Nevertheless, we must continue to develop in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to contribute to the readiness of our country for the next 50 years, and in line with the January 4 Charter issued by His Highness earlier this year.”
During 2019, DJI organised 74 training programmes over a period of 262 days and 1,201 hours, benefiting 1,575 trainees, whose segments varied between members of the judiciary and their assistants, in addition to the police, law enforcement officers, legal officers, lawyers, and government employees.
DJI also published six pieces of research and studies as well as gifted 2,000 copies of its publications on International Law Day. DJI’s smart library contains 9,000 books that include 6,000 titles, with 35 magazines containing nearly 4,000 research papers across the different branches of law. Over the past year, the library added 300 new titles, and DJI published two issues of each of its magazine and the ‘Mohakkama’ magazine in addition to publishing eight updated legislation and six new ones.
DJI provides its services to various target segments through its regular courses, in addition to designing and implementing continuous training programmes that the law has set as its goal in raising the capabilities of Emirati human resources working in the judicial and legal institutions, providing them with legal knowledge and skills as well as enabling them to carry out their tasks efficiently and competently through training programmes and specialised workshops.
Al Sumaiti added: “The success of institutional strategies requires the issuance of accurate statistical reports, where no strategy can fully succeed without basing it on statistical numbers and reports that reflect DJI’s practical reality. This helps us make appropriate decisions, succeed in them, and explore any possible gaps, working to bridge them as part of our proactive solutions plan.”
DJI plays a major role in spreading legal awareness in society through its legal programmes that target all segments and provide them with legal and cognitive skills, preventing them from inadvertently falling under the jurisdiction of the law. One of DJI’s main objectives is to develop and deepen scientific research in society by preparing and disseminating research and studies across various legal and judicial fields. The series of publications issued by DJI are varied and covered everything to do with legal issues, which are characterised by their promotion in the applied and practical aspects, through the principles and judicial rulings issued by the highest courts in the country.
