About the Course and Eligibility

The standard Route to Fellowship is by attending Tutorials and the passing of written examinations
up to Module 3 level. It has been recognized that this standard Route to Fellowship may not be
appropriate for experienced Lawyers and Arbitrators who have been in active practice for ten or more
years. This special program is open to members and non-members of the Institute who are
experienced Arbitrators with an approved legal qualification or civil litigation lawyers with at least ten
years experience including appropriate exposure to arbitration law and practice. Experienced
Arbitrators who are not lawyers will be required to pass Module 1 of the Institute Examination (on
contract, Tort and Evidence) before undertaking this Accelerated Program.

This Special Programme is complete if you:

1. Pass the assessment Workshops
2. Pass the Award writing Examination
3. Pass the Peer Interview

Course Assessment

The course is not a teaching course but an assessment of knowledge of relevant law including the
law and practice of arbitration as well as self-presentation and judgment skills of the candidate.

To prepare for the course a pre-course reading list is provided. This must be read before attending
the course. Participants should make their own arrangements to access the materials in the reading
list since the Institute does not provide all the materials required for the course.

An eligible candidate is deemed to be up to date with the law of contract, tort and evidence as well as
the law and practice of arbitration, for purposes of qualifying.

The assessment will take the form of a series of workshops where participants will be orally assessed on
different aspects of the Arbitral process from a chosen scenario.

The assessments will be based on knowledge of arbitration Law and Practice, Judgement and Self-
presentation. Candidates are strictly assessed based on the 1996 English Act although it is recommended that
one has an average grasp of the 1995 Act.

stage the candidate is expected to prepare their recitals

write their submission and or carry their lap tops as the examination must be done and marked according to
