In 2016 the Laws of the DIFC series were 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, four volumes have been issued.

 DIFC Academy in partnership with LexisNexis Middle East invites you to the awarding ceremony and launch of The Laws of the DIFC, Volume 1 (Reissue) and Volume 4 (New) followed by a series of 2 live webinar lectures to be presented by Commentaries authors.
