Gold Standard Course in Arbitration™*

The first session of the 2017 Gold Standard Course in Arbitration™* will be held on September 16th. This 40-hour course will provide an in-depth understanding of domestic and international commercial arbitration, both institutional and ad hoc, and will be of particular interest to arbitrators and arbitration counsel, or those interested in pursuing practice in this area. The program will be directed by William G. Horton with the assistance of Joel Richler and will be taught by a faculty of leading arbitration practitioners. The course will conclude on May 12, 2018. The first and the final sessions are on Saturday mornings from 9 AM to 1 PM and the intermediate 16 sessions will be two hours each on Wednesday evenings between 7 PM and 9 PM. The course outline is attached as a PDF. Additional details will be coming out in the near future.

All sessions will be held at Arbitration Place in the Bay Adelaide Centre in Toronto. Enrolment will be restricted to 25 participants. The program will be offered to TCAS members at the preferred rate of $750, and registration will be restricted to TCAS members until June 30, 2017, following which registration will be opened up to non-members at a cost of $1,000.

Attendance at the course will satisfy 18 hours of CPD in 2017 (including 2.5 hours of professionalism), and 22 hours in 2018, (including another 2.5 hours of professionalism) if all sessions are attended or viewed by video recording.

As you may know, at its recent Annual General Meeting, the membership of TCAS voted to amend the Constitution to require all members to obtain a Qualified Arbitrator (or equivalent) designation within two years. *The course has received Gold Standard approval by the ADR Institute of Canada meets the training requirements for ADRIC’s Q.
