CIArb Accelerated Route Towards Fellowship (ARF)  29 – 30 June 2019, Sydney, Australia

Providing a fast-track route towards Fellowship through the CIArb International  Arbitration Pathway,  the Accelerated Route Towards Fellowship has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have substantial unassessed knowledge and experience of international arbitration. The aim of the program is to assess whether the candidate has the knowledge required to apply the principles and procedure of international arbitration using arbitration legislation based on the UNCITRAL Model Law and Arbitration Rules and is capable of writing a reasoned and enforceable International Arbitration Award. Candidates must evaluate their personal suitability to undertake the program, appreciating that the assessments are intensive and that they will be assessed against standard benchmarks. This program focuses on the process, practice and procedures in international arbitration which is an essential requirement for qualification as a Fellow and for those who aim to practice as an international arbitrator. CIArb accreditation carries a global qualification in the growing practice of international arbitration.

Accelerated Route Towards Membership Course, 24-25 August 2019, Melbourne, Australia

The day-long course is a pathway to Membership status of CIArb (MCIArb). CIArb accreditation carries a global qualification in the growing practice of international arbitration.

What is the aim of the course?

To provide a fast-track route to Membership through the International (i.e. non-domestic) Arbitration Pathway. The Accelerated Route to Membership has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have some unassessed knowledge of international arbitration. The aim of the program is to assess whether the candidate has the knowledge required to understand the process of international arbitration.

Candidates must evaluate their personal suitability to undertake the program, appreciating that the assessments are intensive and that they will be assessed against standard benchmarks.

The program covers the law underpinning the process and procedure of international arbitration. It is therefore valuable for anyone who is conversant with the law and practice of international arbitration generally, whether as a party or party representative.
