The Academy of Law is an accredited training provider by various statutory bodies, including the Dubai legal Affairs Department and the Dubai Knowledge and Human Development Authority. We offer Learning and Development activities for legal professionals from all backgrounds and levels, from experienced English language Common Law practitioners through to newly qualified lawyers and those currently operating in Arabic speaking civil system.
The Academy identified the legal needs of multinational corporations, and found that broad competencies were required for lawyers to deliver value. It devised a strategy for filling gaps in traditional legal education by focusing on cross-training students and lawyers in civil and common law systems, providing international and comparative law perspectives, expanding access to knowledge by offering Arabic and English language courses, and teaching practical skills and ethical principles to help lawyers develop the competencies required to best serve the legal needs of international clients.
