On 15 May 2021, while the temperature soared to 36 degrees Celsius in Taipei, 25 candidates enjoyed a brisk and invigorating tour led by experienced CIArb’s approved faculty around the international arbitration world. The course “Introduction to International Arbitration” was hosted by CIArb’s Taiwan Chapter in collaboration with National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) and iADR® in Taipei.
As conducting all or part of a hearing in the form of virtual hearing has become a new normality for international arbitrators, Glenn Haley C.Arb FCIArb (Course Director) and Mary Thomson C.Arb FCIArb gave their full support and delivered their lectures seamlessly to the candidates via videoconference from Hong Kong and London, 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.
Thanks also to Nicholas Turner FCIArb (Chairperson of the CIArb, EAB) and Monica Wang FCIArb (Secretary-General of the Taiwan Chapter) for shadowing the course, and much appreciation also for the NYCU staff for making this course possible.
