Representing
yourself.

ADGM COURTS WELCOME THOSE WHO WISH TO BE SELF REPRESENTED.
In representing yourself, there are a few items to consider. Firstly, although it is not necessary for you to be represented by a lawyer, if you are commencing or otherwise involved in a case before ADGM Courts it is recommended that you seek legal advice. Secondly, you must be registered on the eRegistry Portal before you can start a case or participate as a party in a case before ADGM Courts. You can access our Guidelines for further information.
We’ve kept the registration process as easy as possible. All you need for identification is a copy of your passport. Simply start by selecting ‘Register’ below. Enter your name on the registration form exactly as it appears on your passport. Once you have completed the details in the form and set your password, you can commence a claim or participate as a party in a case.
