CIArb launches its first training audiobook, ‘Resolving Disputes Today’

14 Feb 2020

Over the coming months, CIArb is expanding its education and training services across different platforms and media to enable members and non-members to learn about discrete forms of dispute avoidance, management and resolution.

The first new offering for 2020 is an audiobook, ‘Resolving Disputes Today’, collated and adapted by Richard Barnes FCIArb, and edited and read by Michael Patchett Joyce FCIArb. The audiobook is available at Audiobooks.co.uk, for subscribers or Kobo.com to buy for the once-off price of £12.97.

The audiobook introduces some of the main techniques for avoiding, managing and resolving disputes. It considers what constitutes a conflict, looks at litigation and goes into different methods such as mediation and negotiation. It is useful for those who want to understand how to address disputes and the different disciplines and techniques associated with them.

Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Education and Training at CIArb: ‘CIArb already provides leading face-to-face training in several disciplines, including arbitration and mediation, that leads to CIArb membership. The intention is to grow our training opportunities for members and non-members across other areas and media in order increase access and diversify our services. The audiobook is a good contribution to this and I would like to thank Richard and Michael, and our producers, SomersIT, for the help they provided us with this audiobook.’
