Welcome to the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb)
The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is a not-for-profit, UK registered charity working in the public interest through an international network of branches. It has a global membership of around 12,500 individuals who have professional training or experience in alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
We exist for the global promotion, facilitation and development of all forms of private dispute resolution to maximise the contribution that dispute resolution practitioners make.
In addition to providing education and training for arbitrators, mediators and adjudicators, we act as an international centre for practitioners, policy makers, academics and those in business concerned with the cost-effective and early settlement of disputes. This gives users confidence that the very best people are helping to resolve their dispute.
For members, and where appropriate, non-members, CIArb offers a range of resources. It provides tools, support, advice, networking and promotional opportunities as well as facilities by acting as a highly sought after central London Bloomsbury Centre venue for hearings, meetings and other events.
