Upgrade to Member


How can I upgrade from Associate to Member?


You can upgrade from Associate to Member by continuing along the Pathways programme in the area of ADR you have chosen, one of:


  • Mediation
  • Domestic Arbitration
  • International Arbitration
  • Adjudication.


You need to pass Modules 1 and 2.


If you already have an equivalent Law qualification and have some experience in your chosen ADR area, you may be accepted onto our Accelerated Route to Membership programme.


Equivalent Knowledge


You can also apply to transfer to Member grade if you can demonstrate that you have the equivalent knowledge.


An applicant, who wishes CIArb to accept their equivalent knowledge in the place of passing a recognised module, must demonstrate a knowledge equivalent to a pass in the CIArb Module 1 and 2 assessments.


  • Equivalence of Module 1 is a recognised Bachelors law degree or equivalent of; which includes modules on the Law of Obligations and Civil Evidence
  • Equivalence of Module 2 is to show prior knowledge which is at least equivalent to Module 2 (Law of Arbitration)
