Registrations are now open for the 2018 CIArb Accelerated Route Towards Fellowship (ARF) course which will be held from 23 – 24 June 2018 in Melbourne at the Melbourne Commercial Arbitration and Mediation Centre
The faculty includes internationally renowned practitioners and guest speakers experienced in the field of international arbitration.
The course is intended for suitably qualified candidates who are practising lawyers with at least 10 years’ standing and who have substantial experience in arbitration. The Course syllabus is based on international arbitration law and it is essential that candidates have at least a reasonable working knowledge of the UNCITRAL Model Law and UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
The two-day program consists of small discussion groups and workshops in which candidates will be expected to demonstrate knowledge and skill in arbitration.
There will be a pre-course assignment to be handed in on the evening before the course starts on Day 1 and written exercises on each of Day 1 and Day 2. There will also be an overnight exercise to be handed in on the morning of Day 2, and a post-course assignment to be submitted a week following the conclusion of the course. Candidates who successfully complete the Award Writing exam and are subsequently interviewed to the satisfaction of CIArb Australia may then qualify for Fellowship (FCIArb).
An Award Writing exam will be held in Australia in 2019, venue and date TBC. Candidates who successfully complete the ARF course will be entitled to sit that exam. It is not recommended that candidates do so without completing the separate Award Writing course (which will also be conducted in Australia in 2019, venue and date TBC), unless they have substantial experience in writing international arbitration awards.
$3,500 (including GST). This includes morning and afternoon tea and lunch and course materials.
