Accelerated Route to Fellowship (International Arbitration) Assessment

The Accelerated Route to Fellowship (International Arbitration) Assessment is designed for senior practitioners in the field of dispute resolution procedures.  Fellowship is the highest grade of membership and allows the use of the designation FCIArb.   

The Programme focuses on applicable laws and procedures for the conduct of efficient arbitration hearings in complex international cases.  Satisfactory assessment of performance in role play exercises will permit the candidate to take the award writing examination for qualification as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, which will be administered as part of the programme.   It is a process comprised of four elements:

1. Oral Assessment    
This element of the Accelerated Route to Fellowship Programme consists of two days of oral assessment based on a case study of a dispute. Candidates will be assessed on your knowledge, judgment and self-presentation on a series of problems, written exercises and role play, as well as your reasoned award writing ability.

2. Written Assessment.   
Written assignments are part of the assessment process.

3. Award Writing Examination
This element consists of a written open book examination in which an Award must be written and fully reasoned, based on the evidence in an arbitration proceeding.  The exam is administered as part of this weekend program.  To receive a passing grade, the Award must meet international standards for enforcement.
4. Peer Interview
This element follows successful completion of Award Writing Exam, scheduled at a convenient interval after the workshop concludes.  Candidates are interviewed by experienced arbitration practitioners to ensure that the caliber of those passing this Fellowship programme is maintained.
