DIFC Academy, LexisNexis MENA strengthen strategic partnership
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 03 - 08 - 2020

The DIFC Academy and LexisNexis MENA are strengthening their strategic partnership with two new initiatives: "The Annual Technology Adoption Index" and "The Legal Tech Glossary."
These projects follow five years of fruitful collaboration, including the publication of the official DIFC Law Commentaries and Law Reports book collections. Through a joint training program, the DIFC Academy and LexisNexis MENA have co-hosted hundreds of courses and trained thousands of legal practitioners in all areas of law.
Annual Index: The first edition of the Annual Index of Technology Adoption in Dubai's Legal Industry will be published in October 2020. The index will measure the implementation of legal technology within law firms and in-house legal teams, and will be updated annually.
The Legal Tech Glossary: In order to increase awareness of the impact of machine learning, smart contracts, and technology tools on the practice of law in Dubai, key terms and concepts will be defined and made accessible.
Alya Al Zarouni, executive vice president of operations and head of DIFC Academy, DIFC Authority said: "During the last five years, DIFC Academy and LexisNexis have collaborated on projects which support the continued professional development for legal practitioners within and outside the center.
"It is more important than ever to prioritize technology and innovation in order to effectively increase financial and legal sector diversification and contribute to a competitive knowledge-based economy. We look forward to working in closer co-operation with LexisNexis to drive the legal sector adoption of technology and innovation."
"We are very proud to have built the largest legal and tax information platform in the region. The Lexis Middle East solution has revolutionized access to the law for all practitioners. LexisNexis is also a major global player in LegalTech and we believe that artificial intelligence will continue to have a big impact on the practice of law in the years ahead.
"Our strengthened partnership with the DIFC Academy will enable us to better understand local market trends and facilitate access to knowledge for the entire legal community in Dubai. It is an honour for us to have the confidence of a prestigious and influential player such as the DIFC Academy," said Guillaume Deroubaix, managing director of LexisNexis Middle East and North Africa.
The objective of the partnership is to strengthen the services and the sharing of knowledge offered to the legal community in Dubai in the next few years in order to bring it to the level of excellence that Dubai's standards require. — SG
