The study tack les the problem of referment in the Private Inte­rnational Law. In his study, the writer dealt with the point of view of the UAE legislator as a consideration to his efforts in adopting or pursuing a new dimension in the treatment of civil law (article 25) and in particular the case of referment.

The significance of the study lies in the fact that it illustrates the opinion of the UAE legislator in the procedures of referment in comparison to other Arab legislators that repudiated the treatment of referment.

The principal condition of the study is built upon a logical analysis of the purpose of refermentru le itself so as to decide the situation of refermentin the case of acceptance or refusal. In fact, according to what the writer has called as "professional/functional solution" which is based on analysis and the relationship between parts and whole (sources), he insists on not taking any premature decision at this stage. The writer, on the other hand, insists that the solution that can be adopted by the legislator must come from the consideration of the ultimate goal of the rule of referment and its function.
