Launch of the Laws of DIFC Commentaries…
In 2016 the Laws of the DIFC series was launched to provide a narrative statement of the Laws of the DIFC on a subject-by-subject basis in a similar way to the famous Halsbury’s Laws of England. The series is designed to ensure those familiar with other common law jurisdictions but not the DIFC can quickly establish where they can rely on their existing understanding of common law and where the position is different and those who regularly work in the DIFC have easy access to the latest legal position. Since then, five volumes have been issued.
"We partnered with the DIFC Academy because we had a shared vision for enhancing knowledge, raising the bar, raising standards when it comes to ethics, when it comes to practice and legal education training so there’s a natural synergy there. Lexis Nexis wanted to give students access to the best information sources and to enable them to be critical thinkers."
Director, Lexis Nexis Middle East
