In line with its strategy to promote a culture of excellence, innovation and creativity, Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI), a leading centre for legal studies and judicial training in Dubai and a member of the General Network for Government Communication, today Thursday, May 24, 2012 organised a special ceremony to honour its strategic partners whose contributions enabled DJI to successfully achieve its strategic plan for 2011. The plan focused on promoting the ongoing training and development programs, leveraging the best judicial practices and establishing agreements and partnerships with key local, regional and global institutions and authorities to serve the Emirati community.
Held at the DJI premises, the ceremony reflected the Institute’s commitment to reward partners from the media, governmental bodies, academia and the business community for their support towards various training initiatives undertaken by DJI. The training programs are aimed at boosting efficiencies at the national level by emphasizing on the highest standards of integrity, while reaffirming the role of law in achieving comprehensive development, which in turn positively impacts the community as a whole.
Moreover, DJI also honoured the authors and researchers for their intellectual work in the fields of law and justice, which enabled DJI to bring out 16 new publications, along with 83 research and study papers in various fields of UAE law.
During the event, honorary plaques were presented to prominent media and government bodies, including the Dubai Attorney General, Dubai Police, Dubai Courts, Department of Economic Development, DIFC Courts, Dubai Customs and Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Leadership Development. Several judges, DJI employees, volunteers from Ajman University and members of DJI’s Scientific Council were also honoured for their supporting role and excellent performance.
Dr. Jamal Al Sumaiti, Director General of Dubai Judicial Institute, said, “Honouring our strategic partners reaffirms our total commitment to the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed of enhancing government integration and ensuring closer collaboration between government, private, educational and media institutions to achieve national goals and comprehensive development. We would like to thank our strategic partners and underline our ongoing quest for excellence in order to provide the judicial community with the necessary knowledge resources, while also guiding the Emirati community towards a better future. The emphasis will be on building a legal culture, research, training and habilitation programs for the development of human resources in the areas of law and jurisdiction, under the best international practices.”
