Dubai Courts and the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) have signed an agreement to promote a range of personnel development programmes.
The memorandum of understanding covers cooperation in student training, mutual field visits and assistance in executing a comparative judicial research study with Australian courts.
Welcoming the agreement, Ahmed Saeed Bin Hazim, director general at Dubai Courts, said that it underlined the need for stronger interaction between academic bodies and private and public sector organisations.
"We at Dubai Courts will strive to leverage UOWD's expertise and research to enhance our work practices and methodologies. We believe such cooperation will bring rich benefits to our country and Dubai in particular," he said.
The memorandum also seeks to provide assistance to all associates of Dubai Courts to join UOWD as students, helping them to meet the university's admission requirements.
Founded in 1993, the university is located in Dubai Knowledge Village and boasts 3,600 students representing almost 100 nationalities.
