NEW SURVEY TO EXPLORE INVESTMENT TREATY ARBITRATION
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/investmenttreatyarbitration
In its work of monitoring the development and trends in investment treaty arbitration, the IBA Subcommittee on Investment Treaty Arbitration has developed a questionnaire, now available on the SCC web. Investment treaty arbitration has proliferated in recent years. Together with its success it has also faced some criticism from both users and observers. IBA Subcommittee on Investment Treaty Arbitration considers it appropriate to reflect upon and examine this criticism, partly in order to assess potential areas for reform. The Committee is preparing a report on issues in the world of investment arbitration, and the purpose of the survey is to collect information and views about both the practical experiences of the users of the system (eg, States, investors, institutions, and practitioners) as well as the views of observers, as eg, academics and non-governmental organizations. The questionnaire is developed by the Subcommittee together with an advisory group consisting of members from government, academia, civil society, arbitrators and arbitration counsel. Unless a user chooses to waive anonymity, all information submitted, including the identity of those responding to the survey, will be treated confidentially. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The deadline for submitting contributions is 31 July 2015.

AIA partners with Practical Law
Using the links below, AIA members enjoy complimentary access to the full text of Arbitration and Dispute resolution multi-jurisdictional guides published by Practical Law: http://uk.practicallaw.com/resources/uk-publications/multi-jurisdictional-guides/arbitration-mjg and http://uk.practicallaw.com/resources/uk-publications/multi-jurisdictional-guides/dispute-mjg. Each of the guides provides practical information on topical issues, country-specific Q&A overviews on each area of law and practice and also has its own comparative tool which allows the user to select a specific question or topic, select the jurisdictions they are interested in and the tool will compare the answers. The Q&A chapters are written by leading local law firms in each jurisdiction. The questions are designed by PLC's team of ex-private practice lawyers alongside international editorial boards comprising of legal professionals (both in-house and private practice) active in that particular area. This helps to ensure the guides address the key issues facing any international lawyer doing business in an unfamiliar jurisdiction. The guides also feature a useful comparative tool which allows a user to compare specific issues and the answers across selected jurisdictions. If any member would like more information on a contributing law firm or has any feedback regarding the guides, please contact : yani.paramova@practicallaw.com

AIA launches its first IMI certified QAP
The AIA is pleased to announce that we now have a Qualifying Assessment Program (QAP) approved by the International Mediation Institute (IMI). IMI is unique as it is the only organization in the world to cultivate global, professional standards for experienced mediators, advocates and others involved in the field of ADR. In addition, lMI convenes stakeholders, promotes understanding and disseminates skills all in a non-service provider capacity. Establishing the European Mediation Training for Practitioners of Justice (EMTPJ) represented an important milestone for mediation as it allows participants to apply for accreditation in numerous jurisdictions both within and outside Europe thereby creating truly ‘European Mediators’. The AIA offers the assessment in different languages after agreement between the AIA and the candidate. Since then, it has become increasingly important for the AIA to obtain IMI approval in order to have an assessment recognized on a global scale that would cater to experienced, competent mediators, with the overall aim of promoting mediation as a profession. Those who take part in the AIA’s qualifying assessment program and successfully become qualified and then IMI Certified will form part of a worldwide community of experienced mediators who’s Profiles are freely searchable by users through the IMI open search engine. AIA is now open for registrations; applicants must have 200 hours mediation experience and 20 mediation cases. For details please email us at: IMIQAP@arbitration-adr.org AIA also supports the Young Mediators Initiative (YMI), which was established under the umbrella of IMI, with the aim of encouraging, connecting and assisting young mediators worldwide.
