On the administrative and organizational level, the late Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, has issued the judiciary regulating law in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in 2002, and followed it by the Emiri decree No. 7 of 2002 concerning the organizational structure of Courts Department, which was later developed after 4 years by the Emiri decree No. 11 of the year 2006 concerning the organizational structure of RAK Courts Department, and which activated a system of administrative and organizational consistency between departments and divisions to meet all the needs of the department to carry out the tasks entrusted to it - judicial, administrative, notarial and societal. Also the duties of judges and public prosecution members and their accountability became clear and evident, and the Judicial Inspection Division was established to inspect their work and assess their efficiency, and this homogenized judicial pattern did not overlook judges' assistants, announcers and translators, as their tasks were determined to meet the litigation and trials requirements.
The organizational structure of the Department did not overlook the community's influential role in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, either through the reconciliation commission, whose president and members are keen to defuse tensions between disputing parties and reconcile between them or through the Department of Reform and Family Counseling, which was able to achieve remarkable results in reconciling families and reuniting many of them and reduce divorce rates in Ras Al Khaimah community.
The separation of the Public Prosecution from the Courts Department, and moving the judicial inspection's subservience to the Judicial Council
H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi continued the march towards developing the institutional judiciary in Ras Al Khaimah through the separation of the Public Prosecution from RAK Courts, and moving the judicial inspection's subservience to the Judicial Council, to ensure that the RAK Courts Department, the Department of Public Prosecution, and Judicial Inspection Division share a unified judicial pattern on top of which lies the Judicial Council under the chairmanship of H.H. the Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi; therefore law No. 2 of 2012 was issued on the establishment of Public Prosecution, and accordingly law No. 5 of 2012 was issued on the organization of the judiciary, and it was necessary, in the light of the above, to modify the organizational structure of the Courts Department in line with the separation of Public Prosecution to an independent department, and also in line with the termination of the judicial inspection's subservience to the chairman of courts department, and moving its subservience to the judicial Council; therefore the Emiri Decree No. 5 of 2012 was issued on the organizational structure of the Courts Department .
