The Diploma in International Commercial Arbitration is one of CIArb’s leading membership training programmes. Normally delivered in the heart of Oxford for more than twenty years, it provides practising lawyers and other professionals who are familiar with legal reasoning and are involved in arbitration (domestic or international) the opportunity to undertake training and assessments that may make them eligible for peer interview for Fellowship of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb). The Diploma is delivered by highly-experienced and distinguished tutors and involves a combination of lectures, seminars and interactive sessions.
However, this year, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, the decision has been taken to deliver 2020’s Diploma virtually. CIArb will use the online platforms, Moodle and BigBlueButton, to provide candidates with all the necessary training materials and virtual classroom experience. Candidates can also take the assessments at home and submit them using CIArb’s assessment portals. The programme has been adapted for virtual delivery and the Diploma will now be held over 4 weeks as opposed to 9 days.
Across the 4 weeks, the Virtual Diploma will run for 3 days a week (Friday-Sunday) from 9am (London time) to 1pm (London time), apart from some days when supervision takes place. There will be interactive, large and small group sessions, and each week, candidates will have the opportunity to speak to the course director. Dedicated global harmonization and thematic sessions will also be delivered during the programme.
