You are invited to attend the second seminar in the 2020 CIArb Australia and Federal Court of Australia International Arbitration Series.
COVID-19 has changed the way judicial officers, arbitrators and practitioners conduct proceedings: the law has become more virtual than ever before. What does this new reality mean for the profession? Join our esteemed panel for an engaging webinar discussion on the challenges and opportunities for international arbitration in a virtual environment. The panel will consider a range of matters, including: technologies for virtual hearings; difficulties for witness examination; delays to proceedings; and how parties may attempt to use COVID-19 to their advantage in international arbitration.
CPD Points: If this webinar is relevant to your immediate or long term needs in relation to your professional development and practice of the law, then you may be able to claim one point per hour (1 Substantive Law CLE Point). Please check the CLE requirements in your jurisdiction.
CIArb Australia will conduct the 2020Module 3 Award Writing International Arbitration course from September 2020.
Adapting to our current circumstances, CIArb have now integrated the popular virtual classroom software, BigBlueButton, into our virtual learning environment enabling tutors and candidates to connect remotely via video and use a wide range of tools such as screen share, videos, polls and break out rooms to facilitate learning and teaching. Assessments have been converted into coursework which candidates can do remotely via our virtual learning environment, LearnADR and Big Blue Button.
The Module 3 Award Writing International Arbitration course is intended for candidates who have completed the Accelerated Route to Membership (ARM) course and passed the Module 2 online exemption test (or completed Module 2).
This module provides candidates with the knowledge required to understand and consider evidence, to weigh it up and analyse submissions, arrive at a conclusion and write a final, reasoned and enforceable Arbitration Award in compliance with UNCITRAL Model Law.
This course focuses on the processes followed by an Arbitrator in defining the issues that have to be decided by an Award, dealing with the submissions made by the parties, analysing the appropriate law, evaluating the evidence, applying the law to that evidence, arriving at a conclusion and then writing a final, reasoned and enforceable Award.
