Why should you buy The DIFC Law Reports 2017
Published in conjunction with the Academy of Law, the DIFC Law Reports 2017 is the second latest edition of the DIFC Courts official law reports in bound form. The cases included within it have been specially selected for their particular significance and legal importance with the help of Natasha Bakirci, Senior Assistant Registrar: DIFC Courts, David Gallo, Director Academy of Law and Jacques Visser, DIFC Chief Legal Officer.
In each the law report includes a case summary written by an All England Law Report trained Court Reporter.
As a result of changes to the DIFC Courts' jurisdiction in 2011, parties from anywhere in the world, regardless of whether they have any ostensible connection to the DIFC, are able to opt-in to the DIFC Courts' jurisdiction in the context of civil and commercial matters. This has led to a significant increase in the numbers of cases being heard in these courts and there has also been a rise in the average value of cases from 24.2 million US dollars in 2015 to 28.5 million US dollars in 2016.
Cases heard in 2017, have helped to further define the parameters of the DIFC Courts' jurisdiction and explain the practical effects of Article 18 of the DIFC Employment Law. There have also been interesting developments in cases involving services by lawyers and the potential duty to potential tenants.
