Introduction[edit]

Established in 1963, the Ministry of Justice of Yemen seeks to develop an independent judiciary by overseeing operations such as fiscal and administrative services. Additionally, the ministry is responsible for tasks such as the following:[1]

  • Drafting laws that not only affect the judicial system but also the ministry as a whole
  • Facilitating a professional relationship amongst the judiciary, authorities, and legal practitioners
  • Representing Yemen in regional and international seminars that pertain to the judiciary and law-related matters

Although the names sound similar, the Ministry of Justice differs from the Ministry of Legal Affairs in that the latter focuses on human rights and civic freedom for Yemeni citizens.[2]
