The law is aimed at regulating the fees imposed by the courts of law in Dubai for the proceedings services in civil cases, claims and cassations.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE has issued, in his capacity as the Ruler of Dubai, law no. 21 for 2015 on the judicial fees in Dubai courts.

The law is aimed at regulating the fees imposed by the courts of law in Dubai for the proceedings services in civil cases, claims and cassations.

The law authorises the Executive Council of Dubai to amend the fees by means of a resolution. It details provisions for the cases, claims and cassation which are exempted from the court fee.

It states that in case of a dispute regarding the quantum of fees, it shall be referred to the judge of the relevant court whose decision shall be final and irrevocable. The court, however, may reconsider the amount of fees to be collected.

Under the law, a fee deferment and exemption committee shall be formed through a resolution by the President of Dubai Courts, and the committee's decisions shall be final and irrevocable.

All other legislation or rules in contravention of the new law shall now stand superseded. The law is to be issued in the official gazette and shall be effective from 1st September, 2015.
