Ras Al Khaimah Courts Department has launched a Remote Training Program for university students in the UAE via video conferencing. The initiative offers virtual training to university students studying law, negating the need for them to attend the court’s premises in person.
“Establishing the Remote Training Program comes as a part of our commitment to support university students and to offer them the opportunity to receive training and gain practical experience in the face of current circumstances. This initiative will enable participants to complete the field training required by their courses of study,” said His Excellency Ahmad Mohammad Al Khatri, Chairman of the Courts Department.
“It is vital that students are able to undertake the field training as it is a mandatory requirement of their academic courses. This unique Remote Training Program enables them to complete this core component and acquire the needed practical expertise and skills while maintaining the social distancing necessary for their safety and the safety of other students, faculty members and court personnel,” added His Excellency.
His Excellency indicated that the duration of the Remote Training Program is three consecutive weeks, with the initiative hosting 41 law student participants from several universities in the United Arab Emirates. At the end of the tuition period and as part of the field training, practice court sessions will be held and managed by the students under the supervision of a number of specialized judges to recreate real trials.
