In a month’s time, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb), once more with the local support of CAM-CCBC, will hold its workshops and assessment for the admission of new Fellows (FCIArb). This is an intensive program with two days of workshops and written assignments, and an award-writing final exam.
This is the third edition of the ARF in Brazil. The previous ones took place at CAM-CCBC in 2013 and 2016. São Paulo has been leading the expansion of CIArb’s presence in South America. This upcoming ARF is the ideal opportunity for Brazilian and other South American practitioners and arbitrators to become Fellows and benefit from participating in the international community of CIArb. The workshops will be conducted by Jeffrey Elkinson, former CIArb President, with the assistance, among others, of Robert Shawyer and Christopher Dancaster, from the CIArb headquarters, and Antonio Monteiro da Silva, from São Paulo.
To learn more about CIArb and why take part in the Fellowship course and assessment, please visit www.ciarb.org. Feel free to contact any of the Brazilian FCIArb to know about their own experience with the Fellowship program. In addition to the FCIArb listed below, Brazilian membership comprises also a large number of Members (MCIArb) and Associates (ACIArb). You may find a comprehensive list on the CIArb website.
Good luck to all participants in the ARF and welcome to our future Fellows.

To provide a fast-track route towards Fellowship through the International (i.e. non-domestic) Arbitration Pathway. The Accelerated Route towards Fellowship has been designed for busy, legally qualified professionals who have substantial unassessed knowledge and experience of international arbitration. The aim of the programme is to assess whether the candidate has the knowledge required to apply the principles and procedure of international arbitration using arbitration legislation based on the UNCITRAL Model Law and Arbitration Rules and is capable of writing an reasoned and enforceable International Arbitration Award.
Candidates must evaluate their personal suitability to undertake the programme, appreciating that the assessments are intensive and that they will be assessed against standard benchmarks. This programme focuses on the process, practice and procedures in international arbitration which is an essential requirement for qualification as a Fellow and for those who aim to practice as an international arbitrator.
