The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) has announced today the launch of its latest skills e-module, ‘A Guide to Arbitration Award Writing’.
This brand-new comprehensive course considers the technical requirements of arbitration award writing. Those who will benefit most from this course include: CIArb Accelerated Route to Fellowship (ARF) candidates, candidates on Module 3 of CIArb’s Arbitration Pathway, junior associates or arbitrators, and CIArb members wanting to upgrade to Fellowship.
The e-module considers the technical matters of grammar, sentence structure and formatting, and ensures the award is clear, concise, and free from errors or ambiguities. It takes individuals through analysing the facts and legal issues in an arbitration, with a view to preparing an award.
It is set out in three main parts, as there are normally three drafts of the award, and a scenario is included to apply the knowledge attained. Videos from an experienced tutor and arbitrator, Dr Karen Akinci FCIArb, are also included and there are a number of interactive activities to support the learning.
To access the e-learning module, please visit the following link.
For further information, please contact Education & Training - Marianna Goral, Professional Courses Curriculum Development Manager, at email email@example.com.

In a significant moment for mediation, the highly anticipated Churchill judgment overturns the decision in Halsey, confirming it is not a breach of human rights to integrate mediation into the court process and, where appropriate, to order parties to mediate. CMC, Ciarb and CEDR joined forces to intervene in the case, arguing strongly for this outcome.
