The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators is a learned society and charity, headquartered in London, which provides worldwide scholarship and professional development for all areas of alternative dispute resolution. It is also the only accrediting body for arbitrators which confers credentials that are widely recognized and respected around the world.
The Chartered Institute’s New York Branch represents the Institute in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Membership in the Branch is automatic for all members of the Institute in the region and available on request to Institute members outside the region. Anyone interested in alternative dispute resolution can become a member of the Chartered Institute by fulfilling the requirements for the desired level of membership for which they are qualified (Membership information including an on-line application is available by clicking here.)
The Branch regularly collaborates with arbitral and professional organizations worldwide and local academic institutions to bring our members informative and timely professional programs, speakers, conferences and courses that advance the use and practice of ADR and enhance the abilities and opportunities of our members. The Branch also offers regular social gatherings at which members can meet new colleagues and renew existing friendships both within the Branch and with others in the ADR community.
