21 May 2019

CIArb Director General, Anthony Abrahams, visited Brazil in May 2019 to promote CIArb’s activities. CIArb has several accelerated programmes for those with experience in different dispute techniques. The aim of these is for participants to demonstrate that they meet CIArb’s benchmarks for membership and the Director General attended and spoke at one of these programmes, the Accelerated Route to Fellowship, in São Paulo. The programme was undertaken by experienced CIArb faculty and several participants completed it with a view to progressing to CIArb Fellowship.

The Director General also held talks with several prominent practitioners and organisations about the work that CIArb is doing in dispute avoidance, management and resolution. This included discussing CIArb’s new dedicated Maritime Arbitration Diploma which will enable people to obtain a specialised Fellowship qualification in maritime disputes.

The Director General also spoke to local CIArb members in Brazil with a view to setting up a branch that can host events and other training on disputes. Many CIArb members attended this event.
