The Meaning of Judicial Expertise
The Judicial Expertise is one of the methods which the judge can follow whenever there is a need for technical evidence. In case the judge does not have sufficient and enough knowledge in the subject of the dispute, he can appoint an expert so that the expert will provide technical opinion on the topic assigned to him by the judge.
The expert must be regulated by the concerned authority. The expert can be an accountant, banker, engineer, doctor, IT specialist, etc. The parties of the dispute can also agree on nominating a particular expert who must be a specialist in the field of the dispute. If the nominated expert is not regulated, the judge must ask him to swear the Oath before the court.
In most of the countries in the Middle East, the expert must be regulated by the authority. Since the last century, the state of United Arab Emirates was one of the first countries in the region that has paid great importance to the subject of judicial expertise and has enacted laws and legislation for it, and we’ve had the last of those laws was Federal law No. 7 of 2012 concerning the regulation of the profession of judicial expertise
