Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 15 June 2009: The DIFC Courts, the Dubai International Financial Centre’s (DIFC) landmark independent, common-law judicial system, is presenting the third seminar in its Practitioners’ Lecture Series. The educational session will focus on the enforcement of orders, judgments and arbitral awards of both the DIFC Courts and the DIFC-LCIA Arbitration Centre. It will also include a session on international best practice for the enforcement of judgments, orders and arbitral awards. Speakers including, H.E. Justice Omar Al Muhairi, Judge at the DIFC Courts, Tom Montagu-Smith, Barrister at 24 Old Buildings and Joseph Huse, Registrar at DIFC-LCIA Arbitration Centre, will refer to their relevant experiences in individual presentations at the lecture. An open forum session at the end of the event will include a discussion with the speakers and DIFC Courts’ Chief Justice Sir Anthony Evans.

The lecture, which will be followed by a lunch, will take place at the DIFC Centre of Excellence on Tuesday 16th June. It is part of a series designed specifically for legal professionals with the intention of providing knowledge on handling litigation through the DIFC Courts.

Mark Beer, Registrar at DIFC Courts said: “We have been pleased with the feedback from the first two lectures in the series. Lawyers in the UAE are finding that the seminars offer clear guidance on dealing with cases before the DIFC Courts.

“The DIFC Courts is focused on developing the understanding of court processes and procedures among legal practitioners and in providing the highest standards of justice. The global institutions operating within the DIFC expect the highest international standards of legal procedure. Efforts such as the lecture series, our proposed professional code of conduct and the DIFC Courts – Dubai Courts protocol of enforcement are vital in achieving this.”
