The Branch aims to represent CIArb members that reside within its boundaries and we aim to promote the aims and objectives of the Institute at a regional level.
One of the primary functions of the Branch is to arrange educational events for its members.
These range from specific educational topics that are deemed to be of interest to those practising in the fields of law, expert witness, adjudication, mediation and arbitration and can be full or half day events or evening events sometimes held over a dinner.
Some of the events while being educational are also classed as training events for example our popular Mediator, Arbitrator and Adjudicator Surgeries where delegates discuss real-life situations in manageable sized groups that heighten the experience and in some cases provided one-to-one assistance by our experienced tutors and course leaders.
The Branch is often the first port of call for members who wish to learn more about the Institute's affairs or to gain CPD points/hours.
