The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is proud to partner with global legal education provider, BARBRI, to support legal professionals and other individuals on their respective courses. The collaboration aims to support students, qualifying through the Solicitors Qualifying Exam or U.S. bar exam, and those seeking CIArb's arbitration, adjudication, and mediation training and membership of CIArb.
Revealed at the CIArb annual online Congress, the agreement will see the two international organisations come together to offer an exclusive discounted rate for CIArb members and BARBRI alumni from January 2021 to support pathways into practice.
Both organisations will also collaborate on new ADR training courses, including the SQE Prep, as BARBRI prepares for its inaugural 40-week SQE1 Prep course starting this January, ahead of the highly anticipated exam in November 2021.
Catherine Dixon, Director General of CIArb, commented: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with BARBRI to offer additional training opportunities to our members including developing sector leading ADR training as part of the SQE for those aspiring to be a solicitor in England and Wales. At CIArb, our mission is to support dispute resolution practitioners in 149 countries around the world, from research, training, professional standards and ethics to academic thought. This is why we’re excited to collaborate with an industry-leading education partner like BARBRI to provide professional training, guidance and support to our members and aspiring dispute resolvers around the world.”
Speaking of the collaboration, Chris Jorgenson, Director of Institutional Partnerships for BARBRI, said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with CIArb to enhance the student experience, support pathways into practice and enhance employability opportunities. We’re increasingly seeing legal disputes being resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods including arbitration and mediation. Forming a collaboration with CIArb presents our students and alumni with additional career development opportunities that can help them get ahead in an exciting area of practice. At BARBRI, we’ve helped over 1.3 million students prepare to pass a U.S. bar exam and as the SQE is officially introduced in 2021, we look forward to helping many more aspiring legal professionals move forward in their careers.”
