Information Regarding New York CLE Credits:
Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Accelerated Route to Fellowship Course
A fast-track route towards Fellowship in the Chartered Institute through the International Pathway.
This course includes both candidate assessment and an award writing examination (CI Arb Module 4). It assesses whether the candidate has sufficient knowledge required to apply the principles and procedure of international arbitration based on the UNCITRAL Model Law and UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.
Upon successful completion of this course, an applicant will have completed all the course requirements for Institute Fellowship.
Before registering for the ARF or both courses, we STRONGLY ADVISE you to write to firstname.lastname@example.org briefly describing your background and experience in international arbitration. Attendees who do not possess sufficient knowledge or experience in international arbitration have considerable difficulty in passing the award writing exam given at the end of the ARF. An ARF director will review the international arbitration experience you provide and will respond with a recommendation as to whether you are an appropriate candidate for the ARF at this time.
