Thank you for visiting the Official Abu Dhabi Judicial Department website. How may I help you?

Thank you for chatting with us today. Have a nice day. Good bye.

  • Being the highest judicial body in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the Court of Cassation has the power to consider challenges filed against the judgments rendered in the Courts of Appeal, and to decide on jurisdictional conflicts that may emerge among the Emirate courts. Besides, the court has the jurisdiction to determine the accountability of the Executive Council members other senior executives appointed in the emirate pursuant to Emiri Decrees, based on a proposal submitted by the Chairman of the Executive Council, the Ruler's consent, and in accordance with the relevant law.

  • The Court of Cassation consists of ten chambers: 2 criminal, 2 commercial, 2 personal status, 1 administrative, 1 civil, 1 labour, and 1 "judicial affairs chamber" which considers the grievances filed by judicial-office holders in relation to warnings served to them by the Judicial Council.

  • A cassation chamber shall consist of, at least, three judges; and hearings are held openly, unless otherwise provided for by the law. And the court may, on its own initiative or at the request of litigants, order to hold a closed hearing to maintain public order and morals or for special family circumstances. In all cases, a judgment is rendered in an open hearing.

  • The court of cassation ensures in the first place the good interpretation and proper application of the law. Guided by the strategic goals set by ADJD, the court seeks to administer and promote accomplished justice using the latest technologies. The court is keen, as well, to issue judgments within record times to uphold the rights of people on timely basis.

  • Out of its strategic policy, the Court of Cassation conducts on-going communication activities at the local, regional and international levels, in order to exchange judicial information and discuss legal issues with its peers and interested parties. Moreover, the court seeks to promote public awareness of judicial matters through the publication of its judgments on ADJD website and by other means,  with the aim to establish judicial principles in the society.
