Training of East Asia Branch faculty in new CIArb syllabus

20 Feb 2019

CIArb expanded the delivery of its New Pathway programme in the Asia-Pacific region by training 18 new faculty members at the East Asia Branch. The training took place on 24 January 2019 in Hong Kong. It was delivered by Camilla Godman and Paul Barrett,

CIArb’s New Pathways in International Arbitration, Construction Adjudication and Mediation were rolled-out under CIArb’s Golden Thread project. One of the global aims of this project is the endorsement of high standards in dispute avoidance, management and resolution training across the world. Under the New Pathways, candidates everywhere must meet the same level of proficiency and sit the same centralised assessments.

Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Education and Training at CIArb, said: ‘We are delighted to have grown our Faculty in the APAC region. The CIArb Pathways are designed to enable those who wish to join CIArb to undertake valuable training in Arbitration, Construction Adjudication and Mediation. They are built to enable people to take a membership journey from Membership to Fellowship of CIArb. The Pathways will be supplemented by a growth of face to face, blended and online modules (Non-Pathways) in discrete themes of alternative dispute resolution. My team and me will be delighted to assist anyone who is looking for training in ADR.’

If you are a candidate on the Old Pathway, you must contact your local branch to complete the Old Pathway by the end of the year. After 31 December 2019, the Old Pathway courses will not run. If you have any further questions, please contact + 44 (0) 20 7421 7439, or email educationteam@ciarb.org.
