Six-stage program helps prepare arbitrators

A six-stage program that teaches arbitration from basic practicalities to actual practice is underway through an Abu Dhabi partnership, the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce reported recently.

The chamber's Commercial Conciliation and Arbitration Center (ADCCAC) organized the program in conjunction with the GCC Commercial Arbitration Center. Supervised by Magdi Ibrahim Qasem, executive director of the ADCCAC, the course teaches technical and legal cadres in the Arab world to work in arbitration. The secondary goal is to elevate the level of arbitration in the region.
The first stage, "Arbitration Agreements and Drafting Controls,” focuses on theories and practicalities of arbitration, while the second concerns arbitration procedures and the third looks at the arbitration award. Stage four focuses on executing and annulling the awards, stage five showcases trials, and the final stage involves a practical virtual arbitration case in front of a panel.

Upon completion of all stages, participants can obtain the necessary certificates to be registered arbitrators in the list of the GCC Commercial Arbitration Center.
