CMAP Arbitration Training Course

The Centre for Mediation and Arbitration (CMAP) is running its next Arbitration Training Course.

This course, approved by the Conseil National des Barreaux, will run for 32 hours over 8 afternoons on: 9, 16, 23 and 30 March, 6 and 13 April, and 11 and 25 May 2012, from 14h to 18h.

It is aimed at professionals wishing to become arbitrators, and those wishing to find out more about what the arbitration process involves.

The course is taught by judges, lawyers and business practitioners.

The sessions will use variety of teaching methods including presentations, role-plays and media tools, to present both a theoretical and practical training course. Three of the sessions will be given over to practical exercises in order to familiarise participants with the role of the arbitrator and the concept of arbitration.

Topics will include:

  • The role of arbitration in the justice system;
  • The role of an arbitrator;
  • The realities of arbitral proceedings;
  • Practical management of arbitral proceedings;
  • Chairing an arbitral hearing (case study);
  • Challenges and issues specific to arbitration;
  • Presenting an arbitral award (case study);
  • Dispute resolution with CMAP;
  • Optional module (one additional full day) on amending an arbitral award.

Following completion of this training course, participants wishing to become arbitrators will be able to submit their applications to various arbitration institutions, including CMAP. CMAP makes decisions on applications through its Commission of Agreement and Nomination twice a year. However, this training course does not constitute an agreement to appoint any participant as an arbitrator.

Price: 2 900 € without tax; 3,468.40 € including tax.

The optional module is priced separately at 360 € not including tax (430.56€ with tax).
