  • (1888PressRelease) January 03, 2011 - Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI), the leading center for legal studies and judicial training in the Emirate of Dubai, recently launched a new program specially designed to train and qualify Governmental Inspectors in the Ministry of Health who are responsible for enforcing medical regulations and handling breaches in health law. The move is in line with DJI's strategic plan and overall methodology on the development of world-class training programs. It reflects the Institute's commitment to implementing shared learning methods based on established teaching principles and employing the best training tools and techniques to provide legal practitioners with the high levels of experience and knowledge needed to keep pace with local, regional and international trends and practices.

    The new program aims to provide the Ministry of Health's legal officers with scientifically-based legal skills and knowledge. This will ensure the implementation of medical laws in a manner that complements efforts to develop the legal and judicial system and build an integrated knowledge-based community as well as reinforce social, economic, health, environmental and cultural development.

    The initiative is based on proven standards for better understanding and enhancing all the dimensions and laws of the health administration process. It will cover all the necessary legal, human and vocational aspects by focusing on Federal Law No. 10 of 2008 which covers medical liability, the activities of the higher committee of medical liability and the liability investigation process undergone by professional practitioners and insurance firms. The program will also analyze Federal Law no. 11 of 2008 on the licensing of domestic fertility centers. It will discuss articles related to government fertility centers, the resolution of motions to terminate the operations of a fertility center, how to obtain licenses, and the improvement of the conditions of such centers.

    Commenting on the new program, Dr. Jamal Al Sumaiti, DJI Director General, said: "The launching of this new program for the Ministry of Health completes the series of successful training programs we have designed for Governmental Inspectors, Dubai Courts, Military Judiciary, the Ministry of Labor and other major government bodies. Our training initiatives advance our vision of investing substantially in human capital and developing vocational qualification and training programs that boost the efficiency and legal knowledge of practitioners within the judicial and justice systems."

    "This program is of special importance as it is based on medical laws which are of high value to the community. We decided to focus on Federal Law No. 10 of 2008 and Federal Law No. 11 of 2008 to be able to adopt innovative methods that can identify medical breaches and address major challenges to the development of the local health sector," Al Sumaiti added.

    "Our constant development of specialized training programs reflects our leading role in raising legal awareness throughout the community. It also affirms our commitment to closely coordinating with legal and judicial practitioners involved in various fields and providing them with the latest updates and best international practices that can take the judicial system to new horizons as well as advance Dubai Strategic Plan 2015's key elements on safety, justice and security. We shall continue to collaborate with all government institutions concerned with the Emirate's legal system. We aim to promote excellence in law so that Dubai maintains its position as a center for judicial excellence in line with the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai," he concluded.

    The Dubai Judicial Institute was established in 1996 to help educate and train aspiring judges, prosecutors and their assistants, legal experts and lawyers. DJI also offers habilitation programs for public prosecutors to enhance their efficiency. The Institute provides training and consultancy services to various public and private sector agencies and institutions and conducts local, regional and global research and studies on all areas of law and jurisdiction.
