CPR has joined forces with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) North America and Canada Branches to offer a joint three-day Accelerated Route to Fellowship Program. This program is designed for attorneys with approximately 10 years of litigation and/or dispute resolution experience and will take place at The Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.

This program 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 program.  Fellowship status allows the use of the designation "FCIArb."

The two and a half-day program is comprised of three 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.  You 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 will be part of the assessment process during the workshop.  One of the written assignments will be prepared in advance of the workshop and will be collected early on the first day of the workshop.
  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 program.  To receive a passing grade, the Award must meet international standards for enforcement.  This element is included in the tuition cost of this program.

Following successful completion of the three elements described above candidates may apply for a Peer Interview. There is a separate charge for the Peer Interview process; it is not included in the tuition cost of this program.
