Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan, Dubai Police Commander-in-Chief and Head of Security and Justice Committee, has participated in the 'Continuity between Generations' program during a recent visit to the Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI). The program aims to provide DJI's legal trainees with necessary expertise to communicate and introduce the important role of the Institute to leaders and prominent personalities, while strengthening their communication lines with public departments and developing other capabilities, skills and knowledge of trainees.
Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan commended the DJI for its role in achieving the goals set by Dubai Strategic Plan 2015, particularly those related to security and justice. He also lauded the Institute's adoption of best legal practices in a way that helps the society use existing laws to achieve sustainable development.
"As part of our mission to establish a safe community, we believe in DJI's role in upgrading the legal and judicial systems in a way that goes in line with Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 and its two key components of security and justice. This is achieved through the Institute's efforts to train local human resources on high levels of efficiency, integration and provision of legal knowledge in accordance with best international practices, and launching key initiatives as well as deploying best practices in the field of law," said Lieutenant General Khalfan.
The 'Continuity between Generations' project aims to share experiences and success stories of prominent personalities with the Institute's legal trainees. The program provides a great role model for the trainees and facilitates interaction between the new generation and experienced professionals.
"The 'Continuity between Generations' program is one of the Institute's most important projects through which we aim to inspire trainees through successful experiences of others in the judicial and legal domain. This will help boost their capabilities and give them the chance to interact and communicate with experts in this field. DJI is keen to constantly coordinate with all government departments and institutions that believe in the importance of partnership with the community. This was highlighted at the latest Executive Council meeting during which the ‘Dubai Agenda for Social Partnership’ initiative was launched,” said Dr. Jamal Alsumaiti, Director General of Dubai Judicial Institute.”
“The Institute also seeks to create channels of communication with civil society organisations. Accordingly we have included a set of programs in DJI’s training plan this year, which specifically underlines the importance of interaction between the government and various segments of society,” he added.
The Dubai Judicial Institute was established in 1996 to help educate and train aspiring judges, prosecutors and their assistants, legal experts and lawyers. DJI also offers rehabilitation programs for public prosecutors to enhance their efficiency. The Institute also provides training and consultancy services to various agencies and institutions - both private and public – and conducts research and studies in all areas of law and jurisdiction, locally, regionally and globally.
