Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) recently hosted a moot court session for law students from the Faculty of Law at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. The initiative aimed to enhance students’ legal knowledge, hone their practical skills, and foster a connection between academic curricula and real-world applications.
Conducting moot courts within Abu Dhabi’s court premises is part of a broader effort to elevate the quality of education and academic training in the legal field. This endeavor aligns with the vision of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, who emphasizes the importance of developing comprehensive expertise among legal scholars and professionals.
The moot court proceedings provide a simulated environment mirroring real court settings. The designated training courtroom serves as a platform where participants assume various judicial and legal roles, including judges, members of the public prosecution office, judges’ assistants, and defense lawyers.
The ADJD’s initiative not only serves to enrich the educational journey of law students but also contributes to the overall advancement of the legal sector. By providing a platform for aspiring legal professionals to apply their knowledge and skills, the ADJD supports the development of a well-rounded legal workforce equipped to handle the challenges of the profession effectively.
As the ADJD continues to prioritize the development of legal expertise, such initiatives underscore the significance of hands-on learning opportunities and contribute to building a strong foundation for the next generation of legal professionals.
