Resolution Institute Victorian Professional Development Group is conducting a Masterclass for Arbitrators on Saturday 20 November 2021 at the RACV Club Melbourne.

It is Resolution Institute's policy that all Grade 1 and Grade 2 Arbitrators attend a Masterclass every two years as part of the triennial review of their grading.

Attendance at a Masterclass and satisfactory assessment are mandatory requirements for re-grading to Grade 1 or grading review for Grade 1 and Grade 2 Arbitrators in accordance with Resolution Institute Policy Registration for Practising Arbitrators https://www.resolution.institute/documents/item/2306 unless otherwise determined by the Board in any particular case.

Attendance by Grade 3 Arbitrators is encouraged and will assist in skill and knowledge development.

The Master Class will be facilitated and assessed by Russell Thirgood, Michael Heaton QC and Toby Shnookal QC. It will be conducted as an interactive discussion in workshop format and participants will be expected to contribute to the debate on the issue raised.

Topics for the Master Class comprise:

  • Legislative requirements
  • Relevant judgments of superior courts
