(Feb 02, 2008) On January 6, 2008, the Minister of Justice of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mohammed Bin Nakhira al-Daheri, said that the Ministry of Justice is amending the law to allow women to serve in the federal judiciary. He added that women are being trained at the Judicial Institute and will be prepared to work as judges and prosecutors. The Minister explained that the move is compatible with the teaching of Islam, as all laws in the UAE must be.
