TCC ADR Centre facilitates tutoring of Practitioners on the first half of Ciarb Course Module 1 (Law Practice & Procedure of International Arbitration) at Islamabad


ISLAMABAD - PAKISTAN: Mian Sheraz Javaid, a luminary in the field of International Arbitration, recently conducted the first training session for Module 1: Law Practice and Procedure for International Arbitration at the Islamabad Marriott. The event was not just another lecture but a comprehensive tutorial aimed at a select group of brilliant practitioners. The setting was apt, providing an environment conducive to intellectual discourse and practical learning.

The training extended over a period of two days, meticulously planned to cover the first half of Module 1. The objective was clear: to instill a detailed understanding of the procedural elements of International Arbitration. The curriculum was robust, incorporating legislation based on the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law, regional Arbitration law, and the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules. This was not just a theoretical exercise but a practical immersion into the world of arbitration.

The UNCITRAL Model Law is a framework that serves as a guide for the harmonization and modernization of international trade law. It is particularly relevant to Pakistan, a country that is increasingly becoming a hub for international trade and commerce. Pakistan has adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law, thereby aligning its arbitration procedures with international standards. This adoption not only facilitates international arbitration proceedings within the country but also enhances Pakistan's reputation as a favorable destination for dispute resolution.

When it comes to regional arbitration law in Pakistan, the landscape is as diverse as it is intricate. Specific examples include the Arbitration Act of 1940 and the Recognition and Enforcement (Arbitration Agreements and Foreign Arbitral Awards) Act, 2011. These laws govern domestic and international arbitration proceedings, respectively, and are tailored to meet the unique needs and challenges of the Pakistani legal environment. They serve as the backbone for arbitration in Pakistan, providing a legal framework that is both robust and flexible.

The training went beyond mere knowledge dissemination; it was designed to enable students to understand the dynamics of international arbitration fully. The course empowered them to participate proactively in such proceedings, equipping them with the tools and techniques to navigate the complex world of international dispute resolution. This was not just about learning the law but understanding its practical application in real-world scenarios.

Completing this course is not just an academic achievement; it's a critical milestone for those aiming to qualify as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (Ciarb). The course serves as an essential requirement for this prestigious qualification, which is a must-have for anyone who aspires to practice as an International Arbitrator. It's not just about adding another feather to your cap; it's about equipping yourself with the skills needed to excel in this specialized field.

TCC ADR Centre and and the Ciarb Pakistan branch is not resting on its laurels. It has a slew of upcoming courses designed to cater to the diverse needs of lawyers and practitioners in the country.
