The British University in Dubai (BUiD) is now a Recognised Course Provider (RCP) by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb). BUiD’s students on the MSc in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution (CLDR) will be eligible to apply for membership.

BUiD received this recognition as its CLDR programme offers 3 modules with relevance to the CIArb Pathways programme. The CIArb Pathways programme provides a platform that supports the development of professional experience in alternative dispute resolution covering mediation, arbitration and adjudication.

Professor Aymen Masadeh, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, said, “We are very proud of this accomplishment. BUiD works hard to ensure that the quality of its programmes meets with international standards and supports the UAE’s vision of a knowledge-based economy. Our students graduating from the CLDR programme will be eligible for CIArb membership enabling them to join a professional community worldwide provided by CIArb as well as getting instant recognition of their professional standing.”

CIArb RCP status was granted to BUiD for its MSc in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution which was first offered in 2010. The programme enables students to develop expertise in a set of areas related to construction law and dispute resolution. It ensures that students are familiar with the basic construction technology, legal knowledge and techniques necessary to understand current theory and practice in construction law and dispute resolution. The recognition by CIArb shows that BUiD is committed to rigorous educational standards that are in line with CIArb’s educational standards.

CIArb is an international centre of excellence for the practice and profession of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), with a membership of 16,000 based across 149 countries. It acts as a global hub for practitioners, policy makers, academics and those in business, supporting the global promotion, facilitation and development of all ADR methods.
