CIArb is pleased to announce its next project entitled ‘YourADR’. This new framework has been developed to enable CIArb to deliver bespoke training courses for corporate, governmental and other partners. YourADR project provides CIArb's Education and Training Department with the tools to speak to partners, identify what training they need to avoid disputes and maximise results, and help design customised programmes.
It is worth mentioning, that market leading law firms and consultancy companies such as CMS, Allen & Overy, Grant Thornton or Arcadis have already entrusted training of their staff to CIArb.
Whether an organisation needs an established course, customised training or wants to grow its very own in-house academy, under the YourADR framework, CIArb will be able to design a customised program on avoiding, managing and resolving disputes.
These dispute courses will be underpinned by CIArb’s distinguished training benchmarks, which will all be consolidated into a new, industry-leading ‘competence framework’ in the future. This competence framework, made up of the fundamental skills, knowledge and aptitudes expected by clients and practitioners, amongst others, of those working with disputes, will augment the existing education and training quality code. For CIArb, quality has always been fundamental. The CIArb competence framework will supplement CIArb’s quality assurance mechanism, which focusses on matters including participant support, course content, delivery and faculty, and assessments, providing a means for people to pinpoint what courses will be valuable for them.
Using its new delivery models, CIArb will be growing into further areas of dispute avoidance, management and resolution and developing a range of courses in these areas working in conjunction with branches and partners. The new CIArb competence framework will drive this. It will enable all participants to identify their training needs and give clients, employers and others the reassurance they need that they are getting the best when it comes to dispute services. For any further questions, please contact the Director of Education and Training, Dr Paresh Kathrani, at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
