The Vice Chairperson of the CIArb Kenya Mr. Samuel Nderitu, FCIArb spoke in depth about how to set up a career in ADR and discussed investment treaty arbitration, a fairly new area for ADR practitioners in Africa.

Mr. Francis Kariuki, MCIArb, discussed Mediation training in Kenya, Court Annexed Mediation, and Traditional Dispute Resolution Mechanisms. He also encouraged students to get more involved in CIArb activities and submit more articles on ADR.

The Kenya YMG Chairperson Mercy Okiro, MCIArb, discussed the Young Members Group and benefits of CIArb Student Membership. She shared her own journey in ADR and encouraged the students to consider ADR alongside their law degrees. Finally, she informed students that Kenya YMG would be launching a local student membership scheme to ensure more participation of Kenyan students in the local YMG.

The question and answer session was superb as the students had prepared a myriad of questions in advance which were answered excellently by the panel.

We wish to thank the former Chairperson of CIArb Kenya Dr. Kariuki Muigua who assisted us in planning the event as well as the Branch Committee and Secretariat for their support.
