CIArb Introduction to International Arbitration Course in Taipei

02 Dec 2020

As Taiwan is essentially unaffected by the COVID-19 outbreak currently rampaging around the globe, CIArb’s Taiwan Chapter was privileged to hold an “Introduction to International Arbitration” course as scheduled in Taipei on 21 November 2020, and the event was well attended in person by 17 enthusiastic candidates. The course was held at the venue of the Chinese Arbitration Association (CAA) in Taipei, Taiwan.

As the candidates will know after the day’s course, one of the significant features of international commercial arbitration is the cross-border enforcement of an award. Glenn Haley C.Arb FCIArb (Course Director) and Mary Thomson C.Arb FCIArb were undaunted by border restrictions and provided their full support to the Taiwan Chapter by delivering lectures to the candidates via teleconference from Hong Kong and Edinburgh, respectively. They were joined by faculty members, Dr. Helena Chen FCIArb (Convenor of the Taiwan Chapter) and Alison Chang FCIArb (former Head of the Taiwan Chapter YMG), at the venue site.

Thanks also to Monica Wang FCIArb (Secretary-General of the Taiwan Chapter) for shadowing the course, and much appreciation also for the CAA staff for making this course possible.
