CRCICA four-Module Arbitration Program launched, May – December 2011

CRCICA launched a progressive educational ‘ladder’ of four successive courses covering the main arbitration stages being the drafting of the arbitration agreement, the composition of the arbitral tribunal, the arbitral proceedings and finally the writing of the arbitral award. The program, in its four modules, is intended to provide the ideal platform to underpin and support the development of professional experience in arbitration. The initiative is developed in cooperation with the Cairo Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb). Volunteering tutors for the 2011 round are Dr. Mohamed Abdel Raouf, CRCICA Director, and Dr. Mohamed S. Abdel Wahab, Vice President of the Cairo Branch of the CIArb. What is unique about the tutorial methodology of these courses is that the two tutors have both Common Law and Civl Law backgrounds and they lectured together instead of separately to give participants a wide interactive legal exposure.

The four modules were held separately in a total of 14 days from May through December 2011. Attendees represented law firms, the Egyptian Law Suits Authority, construction, media and entertainment and telecommunication companies as well as public sector companies from Egypt, Morocco, Palestine and Sudan.

The courses materials unfold a highly comprehensive collection of laws, rules, conventions, arbitral principles, international guidelines and references, extracts from specialized arbitration journals and most recent court judgments which count up to 21 awards compiled especially for the program. Decisions and guidelines by eminent international institutions in different jurisdictions were also included as relevant. Most interestingly, the tutorials were based on 3 different mock cases, each of which is separately tailored for each module. A sample structure of a final award in an institutional arbitration was also handed to participants as a guidance in their professional practices. Feedbacks were very motivating: “A truly beneficial blend between the theory and the practice ; the tutors stopped to explain every bit of detail out of factual incidents they experienced.” Laila Qassem, Law Suits Authority. “Now I believe I grow really qualified to help my company win future arbitrations.” Emad El Din Al Waqad, The Egyptian Satellite Company, Nilesat.

Upon the tremendous success of the program, CRCICA plans to hold the four modules more frequently in the future.
