The Bar Council Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”) Department, in collaboration with The Malaysian Institute of Arbitrators (“MIArb”), is delighted to bring you an exciting opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of arbitration. This CPD on-site course consists of three sessions — each session will cover an overview of the different stages involved in a typical arbitration proceeding.
Participants stand to gain an understanding on how an arbitration action is commenced; pre-hearing proceedings (including preliminary meetings, pleadings, discovery, and interim reliefs); and the hearing process (including the representation of parties, evidence, conduct of proceedings and examination of witnesses, and time-saving mechanisms).
