The DIFC Courts, Dubai’s established English language, common law judicial system, has announced the appointment of Nasser Al Nasser as a judicial officer.

Al Nasser joins fellow Emiratis HE Judge Omar Al Muhairi, HE Judge Ali Al Madhani and Shamlan Al Sawalehi on the bench of the DIFC Courts.

Al Nasser is a graduate of the University of Middlesex in England (UK) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law: he is the first Emirati to join the DIFC Courts whose primary legal training has been in English common law.

Prior to joining the DIFC Courts, he undertook training programmes with the Dubai Courts and Dubai Public Prosecutor’s Office. Al Nasser will be working closely with the DIFC Courts’ international and national judges, providing judicial support by undertaking legal research, sitting on Small Claims Tribunal (SCT) proceedings and attending case management conferences and application hearings. He will also build relationships with public and external relations’ stakeholders and establish further protocols and MoUs with other regional court systems and legal entities.
