ADGMA School of Law launched

Abu Dhabi Global Market Academy (ADGMA) the knowledge arm of Abu Dhabi Global Market and ADGM Courts, has launched the ‘School of Law’.

The school aims to provide legal education, enabling skill development, research, certification, knowledge development, workshops and seminars.

The academy has partnered with LexisNexis, Chancery Lane Institute for Professionals (CLIP) and New York Law School (NYLS) to develop relevant products and services that will be offered by the school.

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 the publication of thought leadership pieces and white papers. CLIP’s partnership enables SQE preparations through awareness and tuition while NYLS will play 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 in disciplines such as law, notaries, contract management, and technical and commercial project management.

Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, COO at ADGM and 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.”

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.”

In other developments, in April, ADGMA, Human Resources Authority (HRA) and Banque Misr signed an MoU to establish a banking educational programme at Abu Dhabi Global Market.
