CIArb as a supporting organisation is delighted to announce dates for The Institute of Family Law Arbitrators (IFLA) training courses for those wishing to qualify as family arbitrators. IFLA is a not for profit organisation, created by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb), the Family Law Bar Association, and the family lawyers’ group Resolution, in association with the Centre for Child and Family Law Reform.
IFLA runs arbitration schemes relating to family law matters. There are training courses run through CIArb which lead to MCIArb status and eligibility for appointment to the IFLA Scheme.
In July 2016 CIArb launched the Family Law Arbitration Children Scheme, set to bolster the use of arbitration relating to family disputes.
Tom Cadman, Director of Governance and Legal Services at CIArb, said:
'The IFLA Schemes offer parties a mechanism to enable parties to resolve family disputes more quickly, cheaply and in a more flexible and less formal setting than a court room. The training ensures that those who are appointed as arbitrators under the Schemes are trained to the highest professional standards.'
Details of the 2020 training courses are as follows:
Children arbitrators 21 and 22 March 2020 - cost £1,920 incl. VAT
Finance arbitrators 4 and 5 April 2020 – cost £1,980 incl. VAT
Courses are held at CIArb, Bloomsbury Square, London
