Legal system of the United Arab Emirates By Hesham Elrafei https://www.linkedin.com/in/heshamelrafei The legal and courts system in the U nited Arab of Emirates visualized and explained in plain English in a nutshell. The United Arab Emirates , is a federal State founded In 1971 , and It consists of 7 sovereign provinces, governing their own territories. The Constitution established the legal system , based on 5 pillars as follows : the Supreme Council of Rulers , The President and his deputy , the Council of Ministers , the National Council and The Judiciary. The Cabinet , propose and draft the bills before submitting the bill to the federal National Council , which reviews the bill , and can only propose amendments , but cannot initiate a new legislation, seeings its role as a consultative ( advisory ) body; The FNC’s official mandate is to provide for public debate of legislation. once reviewed by the FNC, The proposed legislation, is presented to the President for signature , after being ratified by the Supreme Council , who is the highest Authority within the Federation , and comprises the Rulers of the seven Emirates. On the other hand, the courts system is based upon civil law principles, and Islamic jurisprudence, while some free zones have their own English speaking courts, modeled on the common law judicial system, like Abu Dhabi Global Market , and Dubai International Financial Centre. Some emirates have their own local independent courts Like Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah , While the others are part of the Federal Court system ( Sharjah, Fujairah, Umm al-Quwain, and Ajman), The court system is divided into three layers : a trial first instance court , An intermediate appellate court ( the court Appeal ) , and a last resort court ( the Court of Cassation ) The Court of First Instance , has general jurisdiction to hear all disputes , And it's divided into three main sections: and review evidence to determine the facts of the case; Civil, Criminal, and personal status. The civil cases section, looks into civil, commercial, administrative, and labour disputes; While the personal status court , has jurisdiction over family cases. like inheritance , divorce , Alimony and child custody. Lastly the criminal sections, looks into offences like contraventions (violations), misdemeanors, and felonies cases, referred to the court by the public prosecution , who initiates the criminal process , By filing the case, investigating it , and imposing charges on the accused person. Appeal against a Court of First Instance decision, is made to the intermediate appellate court , on factual or legal grounds. If still not happy with the Court of Appeal decision, the parties may appeal , on points of law alone , to the Court of Cassation , whose decisions are final and are not subject to appeal . While there is no system of precedent, Lower courts must observe the principles set down by the Court of Cassation. On the other hand, some cases must be heard by the Federal Supreme Court , like state security offences , the interpretation of the Constitution and the constitutionality of Laws, the hearing of offences committed by senior officials , and disputes between the 7 emirates.

Mr. Dave spoke about his arbitration practice, and about his optimism for arbitration, despite the fact that in India it has not really taken off as it has in Singapore or Dubai. "The arbitration process suffers from various challenges, but jurisprudentially it is very dear to my heart." He also spoke about his desire to see arbitration institutions strengthened. There are thirty-five to forty million cases in the docks, and it is impossible for the courts to deliver justice as quickly as they are required to. According to him, arbitration is a necessity because commercial disputes require a quick and amicable resolution - litigation is time consuming, doesn't give finality, and can often be bitter. Mr. Dave sits on the Board of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the London Court of International Arbitration ("the LCIA"), which has decided to set up the India chapter of the LCIA to provide some institutional support. This pleases Mr. Dave, as he feels that in India, arbitration is substantially ad hoc, which leads to serious shortcomings in the arbitration process and only through institutional arbitrations can there be some amount of control on the process. As he puts it, "I think arbitration has a great future in India, but we will all have to work very hard, young and senior lawyers both, because the judges distrust the arbitration process and have put in a number of breaks in the arbitration process thanks to their restrictive judgments." When we asked him about what changes are needed for a better environment for arbitration, he elucidated on this point and said the primary thing was to change our mindset. "We have to accept that two principles are very important -- freedom of contracts and autonomy of parties. Once the parties have gone in for arbitration, the courts have very little role, and that's the intention of the 1996 Act. But the judges have forgot this, and the Supreme Court has really disappointed me personally, with judgments like Bhatia International or Saw Pipes or Satyam Computers. Now, every losing party challenges the arbitral award, and the purpose of arbitration as a quick remedy, has been lost." The solution according to him lies in developing institutional arbitration, because the arbitrators - who are retired judges - bring the baggage of procedure, which goes against the spirit of arbitration. Their whole approach is unlike that of a good arbitrator, and because of this, we're losing out on a lot of good cases. In an earlier interview, we had spoken with Sriram Panchu, who mentioned the importance of mediation and conciliation. Mr. Dave also reiterated the importance of these alternate dispute resolution techniques, and cited the successes of the Delhi High Court Mediation and Conciliation Centre, or the centre that Mr. Panchu and others runs in Chennai. But he cautioned that mediation requires a high degree of skill, which is not readily available in our country. Lawyers, he said, can't just become mediators, but need special skills and training in order to inspire confidence in the parties, in the judges, and in society at large as well. A process similar to the intensive training that lawyers in the West undergo needs to be replicated in India.
