CIArb’s Brazil Branch shares its great achievements for the year 2020. One being the Virtual Accelerated Route to Fellowship (ARF) in August, which achieved a record number of 35 candidates from 8 different countries such as Colombia, Guatemala, Russia, and Latvia. The branch had a combination of international and domestic faculty, under the leadership of Ann Ryan Robertson FCIArb as course director and Tonico Monteiro da Silva FCIArb as our Local Education Director and Head Organiser. The course was hugely praised by the participants and the international faculty, and to us, it illustrated the potential of online training and technology to promote even further the international networking CIArb offers to its members.
Another pinnacle of 2020 for CIArb’s Brazil Branch, was its participation in the São Paulo Arbitration Week 2020 (SPAW 2020), which coincided with the celebrations of the Brazil branch’s first anniversary. With the engagement of our Young Members Group, we translated the GAR award-winning guidelines on witness conferencing and offered it to the Brazilian arbitration community.
The result was an outstanding discussion on several key aspects of witness examination and expert evidence in international arbitration which underpinned how useful the CIArb guidelines are in helping structure an effective witness conferencing procedure.
