CIArb and the Centro Internacional de Arbitraje, Mediación y Negociación (CIAMEN), Universidad CEU San Pablo (Madrid), are pleased to announce an agreement under which students who reach a certain level on CIAMEN’s Superior Arbitration Course will be entitled to apply for CIArb Membership (MCIArb).
The two institutions have been collaborating on the translation of CIArb training material into Spanish. This project has culminated in a Spanish workbook that has now been submitted for publishing and this workbook will be used on the Advanced Superior Course in both Spain and Peru.
CIAMEN’s new LLM in International Arbitration programme, which will be delivered in Madrid, Spain, has also been recognised by CIArb.
Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Education and Training, who visited CIAMEN in Madrid in April to discuss the partnership, said: ‘CIArb is delighted to have worked closely with CIAMEN on a project to translate CIArb’s training material into Spanish. This will enable new groups of students to access CIArb arbitration training, as well as CIAMEN’s excellent infrastructure and resources in alternative dispute resolution. We look forward to working with CIAMEN on other projects and welcoming its students to CIArb.’
CIAMEN’s LLM in International Arbitration programme
CIAMEN’s one-year, executive LLM, which will be conducted in Spanish, will take place in Madrid between November 2019 and June 2020.
It offers solid practical and theoretical training in the different subjects of international arbitration and will include conferences, lectures, case studies, moot courts and team work guided by experts in international arbitration.
LLM students will be able to be accredited as MCIArb upon completion of the LLM. Students will also have the opportunity to work with domestic and international companies and institutions.
Arbitration has grown as a formal of dispute resolution in both civil law and common law countries. It provides a valuable opportunity to resolve cases outside of court. This Masters will appeal to those who want to act as arbitrators, experts, counsels, in-house lawyers or members of arbitral institutions.
The LLM program is aimed at graduates and professionals with or without practical arbitration experience. It is multidisciplinary in character and allows professionals from different backgrounds to acquire specialised training in arbitration.
