The website, www.maktouminitiative.ae, which was launched under directives from Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Judicial Council, encompasses information about the body’s initiatives and partners. An e-service section is also featured on the website, which allows interested law students to sign up for competitions. The site includes a media gallery and a section which documents the achievements of the body since its inception.
A special page on the website has been allocated to the partners of the body — DIFC Courts, Dubai Government Human Resource Department, United Arab Emirates University and Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government. Director-General of the body Taresh Eid Al Mansouri said the launch of the website provides a link between the initiatives, the legal community and the law students in the UAE, the GCC and other Arab countries.
"The Al Maktoum Initiatives aim to create a legally well-versed generation, enhance capabilities of persons engaged in the judicial field, and motivate pioneering in legal works. These initiatives are the first of their kind in the Middle East, and are addressed to different categories related to the legal and judicial community," noted Al Mansouri.
