On 19 May 2020, CIArb’s South East Branch and University of Law launched the “Student ADR Essay Competition 2020”.
Open to all students and those undertaking professional accreditation courses in the United Kingdom, this branch initiative builds on the successful first year of the competition. This year’s online launch attracted 170 registrations and was presented by Branch Chair Charles Brown C.Arb FCIArb and Margaret Matthews LPC Programme Student Lead at University of Law with contributions from one of the 2019 winners. The winners this year will again be chosen from a short list by our judging panel led by the Rt. Hon. Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, past President of the United Kingdom Supreme Court.
The prizes are £2,500, £1,250 and £750 and the winner is also offered a one month internship in the arbitration unit of a leading law firm and publication of the winning essay in CIArb 'Arbitration: The Journal of International Arbitration, Meditation, and Dispute Management'. Note that this is only available to students residing in the UK.
For more details of the competition and instructions to register interest, a recording of the Launch event is available at here.
