This assessment is completed via LearnADR, CIArb's online learning platform. Candidates will be given 48 hours within a 5 day window to submit their decision online. Candidates must achieve a minimum of 70% overall to pass the assessment.
This assessment is split into 2 parts:
This consists of the papers in the case. They are sufficient to enable you to grasp the nature of the case and the likely legal problems. Most of the documents are extracts only. You should consider the introductory sections you intend to include and the matters of law and fact disputed by the parties.
This is the equivalent of the hearing stage. It includes your record of the meeting. This records the oral evidence and arguments the adjudicator has heard, as well as any other relevant documents. From all the evidence you must make findings of law and findings of fact. Different candidates will no doubt make different findings. This is of no consequence, except that it means there are a great many possible answers to the question. When you have made your finding, write the remaining parts of your Decision. It must be a final Decision as regards the issues you decide.
As this Decision is completed under examination conditions and within a limited time, there is no need during the examination to copy out extracts from documents provided to candidates. It is sufficient to reference the relevant document or part of it.
Stage 1 is sent via email 10 days before the assessment date.
Stage 2 will be made available via LearnADR on the assessment date for 5 days.
