Course description

Module 2 - Law of Obligations

To provide an understanding of the relevant principles in the law of tort and the law of contract in the context of how disputes may arise and be resolved. This course is designed to consider both common and civil law jurisdictional principles to give a solid grounding to all practitioners.

This course is intended for individuals who may not have studied law previously and wish to gain an understanding of the elements of the law of obligations that affect matters in civil and commercial disputes in a variety of different jurisdictions. It is suitable for anyone with a general interest in dispute resolution and is essential for individuals who wish to go on to become qualified Arbitrators, Adjudicators or Mediators. It is also suitable for those from either system of law wishing to improve or refresh their knowledge of the more unfamiliar system of law.

Suitability - Who should attend?

In order to register for the course, candidates must:

  • Have successfully completed and passed Module 1 – Law, Practice and Procedure
  • Applicants who have a recognized law degree or practicing law certificate may be eligible for the Module 2 online exemption test.

English Language Competence - CIArb training and assessment is carried out in English it is therefore essential that candidates are proficient in both written and spoken English.  Where English is not a candidate’s first language it is recommended that they have achieved a standard that is, as a minimum, equivalent to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) level 7 or a score of 94-101 in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) system. CIArb issues this advice as a guideline and, while it will not require any evidence of this standard prior to enrolment on a course, candidates who do not have this standard of English may be disadvantaged.
