(H.E.) / Expert Tarish Eid Al Mansouri, Director-General of Dubai Courts, said: “Our recent success in completing the third phase of the Shoor initiative is a result of the concerted efforts of our strategic partners from Dubai’s law firms who share our common vision of disseminating legal and judicial knowledge among social circles. We look at this particular initiative with confidence and optimism, as we consider it as a bridge to facilitate litigation and the provision of reliable consultations that support our endeavor to satisfy customers in line with the directions of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.” “Since its inception in 2012, the Shoor initiative has succeeded in gaining the confidence of clients who have expressed high levels of satisfaction for pro-bono legal consultations. We are moving at a steady pace to complete the final phase of this initiative, which will make a positive impact on the development of Dubai’s litigation system. We reaffirm our commitment to continuously cooperating with our law firm partners who have had a prominent role in supporting our vision of achieving ‘Leadership in Courts,’” concluded Al Mansouri.
