Experience surpasses all other evidence in certain cases thanks to the importance in UAE legislature given to regulation No. 7 2012.”
Al Khatib added that due to the importance of this regulation the College of Law at UAEU decided to hold a seminar to highlight the provisions of this new federal law and link it to corresponding theories. This seminar benefits from the practical participation of specialists, professors of law, judges, lawyers and other experts.
The seminar was divided into two sessions: the first session was chaired by Professor Dr. Ghazi Orabi from the College of Law advised by Abdel Karim Pharaon, Judge of the Court of Cassation in Abu Dhabi, and Judge Mohammed Mubarak Saboosi, President of the Commercial Court and the Chairman of the Committee of Experts of the Dubai Courts .
