The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is proud to announce a new e-module course, ‘A Guide to Arbitration Award Writing’ to be launched at the end of October 2020.
This comprehensive course provides candidates with the key skills needed to understand the technical requirements of arbitration award writing. Those who will benefit most from this course include: Accelerated Route to Fellowship candidates, candidates on Module 3 of CIArb’s Arbitration Pathway, junior associates or arbitrators, and members wanting to upgrade to Fellowship of CIArb.
This course focuses on developing the key skills needed to understand the technical requirements of an award as well as the technical matters of grammar, sentence structure and formatting, and ensuring the award is clear, concise, and free from errors or ambiguities.
It guides individuals through analysing the facts and legal issues in an arbitration, with a view to preparing an award. The course 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, Founding Partner of Akinci Law and CIArb Tutor in Domestic and International Arbitration, are included and there are also interactive activities to reinforce the learning and ensure the most robust and enjoyable learning experience.
