Introduction To International Arbitration 10 May 2019, Perth, Australia
Due to multiple successes in the past, CIArb Australia will be conducting the Introduction to International Arbitration course again in 2019. We are pleased to announce it will be run in Perth, Western Australia, on Friday 10 May 2019. In addition to sessions being conducted by prominent arbitration experts and practitioners, the course will feature addresses by guest speakers.
The day-long course carries a pathway to Associate member status of CIArb. CIArb accreditation carries a global qualification in the growing practice of international arbitration.
The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the general principles of international (ie non-domestic) arbitration and its relationship to other dispute resolution processes. The course will provide candidates with an introduction to the legal framework of, and good practice and procedure in, international arbitration in their jurisdiction.

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.

To provide a fast-track route to Membership through the International (i.e. non-domestic) Arbitration Pathway.
