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 of the object and definition of an award; types of awards; forms and substantive requirements of an award; and the correction, challenges, and enforcement of awards.
