MOCAF works on enhancing the legal knowledge across the federal government, and provides full support to federal entities, especially in the legal areas. This is done through a team of legal experts who support the process of drafting legislations, laws and decisions issued by the Cabinet. MOCAF provides legal support to the Cabinet, proposes and develops legal services in the federal government, and enhances the capabilities of legal departments in the federal ministries and entities. The office has contributed to preparation and review of studies, decisions, memos, and legislations, and follow up on their implementation in coordination with federal entities, thus contributing to a faster and more effective legislative cycle
MOCAF's legal department has also played a vital role in shaping laws and decrees that had massive impact on the UAE’s reputation globally. This included the introduction of new government entities, the development of government work, and the support of UAE social and economic development.
