Ministry of Justice and Supreme Judiciary Council

Ministry of Justice and Supreme Judiciary Council

What is the role of the Ministry of Justice? Its main responsibility is to make sure that the practice of law in Qatar is properly supervised, as well as overseeing the registration of legal processes in the country. It takes charge of reviewing contracts that are duly undertaken by other governmental bodies, and it must be able to increase overall awareness of the law. In order to accomplish this, the MOJ provides legal training for various government employees, including the close monitoring of any professions that are related to the law.

The ministry also provides assistance in other sectors of the government. For instance, the Ministry of Justice has recently launched a new service that helps with the registration of real estate brokers. It helps with the necessary publications that will function to introduce both visitors and investors to the different kinds of procedures when it comes to regulating non-Qatari ownership. This includes various regulations and specific provisions on the ministerial decree on ownership and use.

Via the website of the MOJ, real estate brokers will now be able to provide registration requirements for every broker category. At the same time, this regulates the practice of the real estate brokerage profession in accordance with best practices and standards in Qatar.

In line with the MOJ, the Supreme Judiciary Council possesses Judicial Authority from the Permanent Constitution of the State of Qatar. This enables the SJC to achieve the necessary justice independently of other authorities over legal matters. These judgements must, of course, guarantee the rights and liberties of society as a whole.

The SJC provides the following services for the people of Qatar:

  • Case Query
  • Hearing Schedule
  • Marriage Assistants
  • Judgment Copy Request
  • Engineers List
  • Accounts List
  • Other professional experts
  • Estimate Experts
  • Register SMS
  • Lawyers
  • List of Cases
  • Requests Status

Regardless of your official business in Qatar, you will need a strong, solid, and reliable business consultancy partner to help you navigate through the various intricacies of the law. To keep from getting overwhelmed by the legal system, you will need expert assistance when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of the whole process. When it comes to submitting paperwork, complete requirements, and applying for various permits and licenses regarding issues of the law, having a solid legal partner to help you with attestations, apostille, translations, and even police clearance certificates will make a world of difference.
