A day–long training programme on “Arbitration” was organized by Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre (BIAC) on Tuesday (29 December 2015) at its multi-purpose room at Panthapath, Dhaka.
The training highlighted the Origin of ADR; ADR in Bangladesh Laws, Elements, Importance and Effects of Arbitration Clause; Composition of Arbitration Tribunal; Appointment of Arbitrator; Difference between ad-hoc and institutional arbitration; Role of national Courts in Arbitration; Commencement and conduct of arbitration proceedings, Arbitral Award and its enforcement.
To ease congestion of cases at every level of our court system and to get around complex court procedures, Bangladesh Government has undertaken a number of measures to expedite disposal of cases. As a part of their effort, a number of significant enactments have also been passed in recent years incorporating provisions making ADR as an alternative method of dispute resolution. But to get results of these changes in our laws we require trained ADR professionals in the country. This training programme, organized by BIAC, will help a long way in creating a pool of ADR professionals in the country.
Barrister Imtiaz Farooq and Barrister Nabil Ahsan were the trainers, while trainees from different government organizations and private companies participated in the programme. Certificates were distributed among the trainees after successful completion of the programme.
