United Arab Emirates (UAE) Background

Through funding and support from the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) worked in partnership with the Ministry of Justice and the Institute of Training and Judicial Studies to implement a variety of regional workshops and conferences, which were part of ABA ROLI efforts to strengthen professional legal education. Conference and workshop topics included judicial education, best practices in continuing legal education (CLE) and judicial ethics.

In addition to hosting events in the UAE, ABA ROLI has also supported participation of UAE professionals in regional CLE events elsewhere.
