    Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA), the knowledge arm of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and ADGM Courts announced the launch of ‘The School of Law’ today. Underscoring its commitment to promoting the competency of the UAE’s judicial system and legal professionals. The school aims to provide world-class legal education, enhancing professional competencies through skill development, research, certification, knowledge development, workshops and seminars.

    In collaboration with its strategic partners which include LexisNexis, Chancery Lane Institute for Professionals (CLIP) and New York Law School (NYLS), ADGM’s School of Law will develop products and services to meet the market demands and contribute to the UAE’s knowledge economy. As a partner, LexisNexis will enable new professionals with certifications and qualifications, while upskilling existing professionals in the field through training, seminars, events, conferences, and publication of thought leadership pieces and white papers. CLIP’s partnership enables SQE preparations through awareness and tuition while NYLS plays an important role in enabling training for Arbitration and Legal Certification.

    The School of Law is open to all those interested in gaining or maintaining a competitive edge in their legal or commercial profession. The offerings are suited to professionals across multiple organisational roles looking to sharpen their skills or receive qualifications in disciplines such as law, notaries, contract management, and technical and commercial project management.

    Stressing the importance of the new law school Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, Chief Operating Officer at ADGM & Managing Director of ADGMA said, “The launch of the School of Law builds on ADGM Academy’s commitment to design and deliver educational means that strengthen the UAE’s knowledge economy. The new school plays a vital role in educating and developing Abu Dhabi and the nation’s local ecosystem within critical focus areas. Our collaboration with internationally recognised partners stands as a testament to the quality of literacy we aim to deliver to legal professionals.”

    Talking about the support The School of Law will provide, Linda Fitz-Alan Registrar and Chief Executive, ADGM Courts said, “A strong legal framework is not just built by laws but also the individuals who are an intrinsic part of the system. The School of Law’s professional education system will support the overall legal sector by ensuring lawyers, notaries and other legal professionals have the necessary tools, techniques and resources to excel in the ever-changing and dynamic market.”

    ADGMA has built a world-class financial education and literacy portfolio by delivering training programmes and certifications with international recognition.
