ADJD organises moot court for Sorbonne University Law students

ABU DHABI, 26th May, 2023 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) organised a moot court for students of the Faculty of Law at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi to enrich their legal knowledge and develop their practical skills and abilities by linking the curricula with practical field application.

Holding moot courts in Abu Dhabi courts comes within the framework of efforts aimed at raising the quality of education and academic training and developing in-depth knowledge for scholars and specialists in the legal field, in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department.

The proceedings in the moot court reflect an applied model for real courts, which are presented in the designated training courtroom, where the trainees play various judicial and legal roles, including the roles of judges, members of the public prosecution office, judges’ assistants, and defence lawyers in the hypothetical case before the judicial body.

This experience meets many requirements, the most important of which is the harmonisation between the theoretical study of law subjects in universities and the requirements of practical reality in courts and prosecution offices.
