CIArb is a Contributor to Global Arbitration Scholarship

Arbitration is a complex field, and one of the key contributions that CIArb members make is to write scholarly articles, case notes, commentaries and submissions on the law and practice of arbitration and other dispute resolution disciplines.

The main medium for the publication of these papers is Arbitration, the official journal of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. Arbitration is one of the most widely distributed and read arbitration and ADR journals, and it is published four times a year. All CIArb members receive Arbitration as part of their membership entitlements, and all members are encouraged to make submissions to Arbitration.
