A History of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators

The Centenary Book traces CIArb's story, beginning with the international expansion of recent times, before stepping back to look at its early years as well as the growth of our educational role and its role as a learned society.

We commissioned this beautifully illustrated book from London-based publishers Third Millennium Publishing

The book is set against the background of the development of domestic and international arbitration and peppered with the recollections of members past and present.
