17 & 18 MAY 2014

Dear All,

The Malaysian Institute of Arbitrators (MIArb) will be organising a Fast-Track Fellowship programme on 17th and 18th May 2014.

The Fast-Track Fellowship programme will be conducted over two days and will comprise of a written exam covering three modules and an award writing exam. A Peer interview will be held later at a date to be fixed by the Council. Candidates must pass the exam on all three modules and the Award Writing examination to be entitled to attend the Peer Interview. The candidate must then successfully complete the Peer Interview.

The course modules are as follows:
1. Malaysian Arbitration Act and Jurisdiction of the Arbitrator;
2. Arbitration Procedure, Preliminary Meetings and Interlocutory Applications;
3. Arbitrators' Duties and Responsibilities, Ethics and Misconduct.

The Award Writing examination will be premised upon pleadings, brief witness statements, notes of evidence, written submissions and some brief documents arising from a mock dispute and arbitration scenario.

Candidates will be graded by their comprehension and appreciation of issues that arise from each course module and their ability to prepare a valid and enforceable award. Candidates will be allowed to hand-write or use their own notebooks to type up their answers to the exam and the award.

The course will be conducted over two days. The first day will comprise approximately 1 hour lecture on each of the course modules listed above followed by a written examination in the afternoon. The second day will comprise a two to three hour lecture on award writing followed by an Award Writing examination in the afternoon. The speakers for the various lectures will be distinguished and experienced arbitrators.

A list of reading materials will be provided to all candidates prior to the date of the commencement of the course and candidates are to make their own arrangements to source the said materials. There will also be a preliminary set of documents consisting of pleadings given to the candidates for the Award Writing exam so as to prepare the candidate for the same.

Both exams will be open book exams and candidates are allowed to have with them any books, articles or other documents which may assist them in the exams.
