Presidential panels are panels of senior and experienced practitioners who are trained arbitrators, commercial and civil mediators, and adjudicators.
When a request is received by CIArb for an arbitrator, mediator or adjudicator to be appointed, or a party has a dispute resolution contract clause that nominates the President of CIArb to appoint an arbitrator, mediator or adjudicator, the President makes a selection from the most qualified and suitable members of the Presidential Panel for the job.
All individuals who are members of one of these panels have demonstrated to CIArb that they have a suitable level of knowledge, skill and experience in their discipline, together with a commitment to ongoing personal professional development and to following high ethical and professional standards of conduct.
