The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department is set to participate in the 33rd edition of the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF), taking place from April 29 to May 5 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

The participation reflects the department's commitment to advancing legal culture and disseminating educational messages through innovative means, alongside introducing new and pioneering services regionally and internationally.

During a tour of the department's pavilion, Counselor Yousef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, underscored the department's continual involvement in the Abu Dhabi Book Fair.

He emphasised the diversification of activities aimed at promoting legal awareness and delivering educational messages to all segments of society, aligning with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President of the UAE, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department.

These directives highlight the crucial role of fostering legal knowledge across society as a cornerstone for upholding the rule of law.

In addition to showcasing legal publications encompassing a diverse range of books and specialized journals in the judicial and legal fields, the department's pavilion also exhibits products crafted by inmates of correction and rehabilitation centres.

These include handicrafts, artworks and creative pieces, aimed at supporting their skill enhancement and integration into society.

The department's participation in the current book fair extends to delivering educational messages aligned with the campaigns launched by the Abu Dhabi Centre for Legal and Community Awareness (Masouliya). These campaigns focus on combatting domestic violence, raising awareness of preventive measures against such crimes, outlining the rights and duties within families and highlighting the penalties for offenders.

Additionally, the campaign "Respecting Privacy... a Right & Duty" aims to educate social media users about the legal responsibilities concerning privacy violations.

Visitors to the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair can benefit from family and psychological consultations offered by specialists, alongside engaging in contests and interactive activities in the children's corner, aimed at educating and strengthening family relationships to uphold societal cohesion and stability.

Furthermore, the department dedicates a section of its pavilion to showcase the services of the ADJD’s English Notary Services Bureau, the first of its kind in the Middle East.

This bureau plays a pivotal role in supporting the business sector by streamlining legal documentation procedures, thereby enhancing ease of doing business to bolster Abu Dhabi's international competitiveness and attractiveness for foreign investment.
