Module 3 – International Arbitration: Evidence, Decision Making And Award Writing (New)

Chartered Institute of Arbitrators

To provide the candidate with the knowledge required to understand and consider evidence, to weigh it up and analyse submissions, arrive at a conclusion and write a final, reasoned and enforceable arbitration Award in compliance with the UNCITRAL Model Law and Arbitration Rules.

This course focuses on the processes followed by an arbitrator in defining the issues that have to be decided by an Award, dealing with the submissions made by the parties, analysing the appropriate law, evaluating the evidence, applying the law to that evidence, arriving at a conclusion and then writing a final, reasoned and enforceable Award.

It is therefore valuable for anyone wishing to understand the processes involved in award writing. It is also an essential requirement for qualification as a Fellow and for those who aim to practise as an International Arbitrator.
