New For 2022

 

The legal Affairs Department is proud to introduce the 6th year of the Continuing Legal Professional Development programme.

The Department is delighted to introduce new learning formats through the use of E-Learning blended with the Web-Ex sessions that have proven to be popular over the last two years.

There has been a demand to reinstate face to face training on the programme, and the Department is continually monitoring the changing situation. Should it become possible, we will endeavor to offer this option in a safe environment adhering to all protocols required.

This year will see the introduction of eleven new topics that will be introduced throughout the first and second quarter of the year.

The Department will build on the continued success of the Legal Update Podcast and based on the feedback will introduce it over two parts in March and October.  

Requirements

Legal consultants are required to complete a minimum of one course from each of the three pathways, and then will have the choice of completing a fourth course from either the legal or technical skills pathways. This way they complete four Mandatory courses and attain the required minimum of eight hours mandatory CLPD. As per the ethos of the project we are consistently evolving to bring new practical courses. We will also be running year one, two and three courses for those that did not have the opportunity to previously complete these courses. If you have completed a course in Year 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 you WILL NOT be given CLPD points for repeating the same course. To learn more about workshop sessions please click HERE.

This year’s courses will include:  

Legal Skills

  • Legal Update Podcast
  • UAE and DIFC Employment Law - An update
  • Financial Regulation in the UAE
  • Commercial Law – an update
 

Technical Skills

  • An Introduction to Legal Project Management

In addition, further courses will be designed and released throughout the year to allow the CLPD programme to meet the constantly evolving legal framework of the Emirate of Dubai.

Ethics

  • Legal Ethics in a post-Covid world

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Further to the Directive from the Ministry of Education laid down in March 2020 that all training facilities must be closed, the Legal Affairs Department transferred all training to Webex. Whilst the training centre is now open, the sessions are being held via Webex until further notice. All scheduled sessions will proceed at their designated date and time, live via an online portal rather than at the centre.
