Legal practitioners often describe the United Arab Emirates as a "civil law" jurisdiction. But is that description accurate? The United Arab Emirates is called a melting pot because of the many nationalities and cultures that coexist within its borders. Fittingly, the legal system of the United Arab Emirates mirrors the cultural complexity of the country's population. The United Arab Emirates is an evolving legal system that currently reflects a unique mixture of several of the world's great legal traditions, including Islamic Shari'a, French-inspired civil law, and the Anglo-American common law. This talk will explore the depth and breadth of the legal system in the UAE.
