Abu Dhabi Judicial Academy concludes real estate dispute training
The training programme aligns with the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department’s goal to encourage litigants to use alternative resolutions in commercial and economic disputes
The second basic training programme for conciliators on the amicable settlement of real estate disputes has been completed according to the Abu Dhabi Judicial Academy. 14 members participated from the Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities – Municipalities of Al Ain, Abu Dhabi and Al Dhafra.
The programme includes 16 courses reflected in four main themes – general legal foundations for real estate conciliators; specialised real estate and municipal legislation; skills development and the organisation of the profession as an auxiliary to the judiciary, and practical training in managing alternative resolutions.
According to a statement, the programme aligns with the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department’s goal to encourage litigants to use alternative resolution, especially in commercial and economic disputes, intending to reduce the burden of litigation on all parties, and saving time, effort and costs, hence contributing to accelerate the circulation of capital and attraction of investments.
“The organisation of the real estate conciliator programme is part of our plan to contribute to the efforts of the Abu Dhabi government, aimed at enhancing confidence and stability in the real estate sector, being one of the most important pillars to enhance the international competitiveness of the emirate at the regional and international levels,” said Yousef Saeed Al Abri, the Under-Secretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department and the chairman of the Academy’s Board of Directors.
He explained that the basic training programme for conciliators aims to prepare an efficient cadre of mediators and conciliators by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and capabilities necessary for negotiation, mediation, conciliation, and early neutral evaluation between the parties to a dispute, to reach an efficient and effective amicable settlement of the real estate and municipal disputes.
