Brand Protection in Times of Dispute

An eModule for both those with a legal background and for those without, CIArb demonstrates the different strategies of distinguishing the brand from the dispute in times of disagreement.

A Guide to Arbitration Award Writing

This eModule 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.
