Ciarb’s education and events programme provides leading training for practitioners on how to effectively resolve disputes, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). In alliance with the EWI, Ciarb will support the ADR community and its end-users with trained expert witnesses through the promotion and provision of EWI training and support to expert witnesses.
Catherine Dixon, Ciarb’s Director General says, “Expert witnesses play a critical role in enabling the parties to resolve their dispute effectively and fairly. This requires the Expert to take an active role in the resolution of a dispute. Providing training and support through the EWI will enable Experts to more effectively discharge this important role within the ADR process.”
Simon Berney-Edwards, CEO of the EWI says, “The effective use of Experts is the factor that will often determine whether a mediation or arbitration will succeed or fail. During their career, as Expert Witnesses see the impact their contribution can have on dispute resolution, some will consider moving into Arbitration alongside their Expert Witness practice. I am therefore extremely excited to be able to offer our members a clear entry route into the ADR profession through this alliance with Ciarb.”
Under the agreement, the EWI will promote relevant Ciarb events to EWI members. EWI will also provide Ciarb members with:

Simon Berney-Edwards, CEO of the EWI says, “We look forward to working with Ciarb and are delighted to be able to provide EWI members with increased value by giving them access to Ciarb’s highly regarded qualifications and training.”
Catherine Dixon finishes, “One of the most important ways we support the development of ADR is through ensuring our members have access to high quality training, information and events. Expert witnesses make up an important section of our membership and the global ADR community. Many become practicing Neutrals and we will support and develop their skills through training. Working with the EWI, we will support the Expert Witness community more effectively. We look forward to working with the EWI team.”
