Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai has issued approval for the formation of an all-encompassing Board of Commissioners aiming to enhance confidence in Dubai's legal network.

The Dubai Court of Cassation was established in 1988 to provide uniformity in the administration of justice throughout Dubai's courts. The Court of Cassation examines whether lower courts' rulings are legal rather than re-trying cases that they have already heard.

This directive aligns with Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s commitment to improving its judicial system within its emirate province. With this new measure set into motion, an impartial approach would be guaranteed in delivering justice together with safeguarding every individual involved during a lawsuit.

In a bid to support Emiratisation plans and select the most qualified judges, the Court of Cassation in the UAE has created a Board of Commissioners. This body will be responsible for training and qualifying judges who could potentially serve as appointments within the court's ranks. Moreover, it will examine appeals before their submission to the Chambers of Cassation to provide informed opinions backed by reliable evidence and witness testimonials.

The Board of Commissioners will be in charge of analyzing cases submitted to the Court of Cassation, reviewing appeal parties' requests for reconciliation, determining whether litigation has been abandoned, and other issues that might affect whether an appeal or verdict is upheld. The Chief of the Court of Cassation or the heads of the Court's Chambers may also submit applications, and the Board will comment on those applications as well.

Dubai has taken a formidable leap towards enhancing its judicial system and litigation process by launching the Board of Commissioners. The establishment of this institution signifies an important step towards achieving an impartial and efficient legal system, thereby ensuring justice for all.
