Arbitration Pre-Fellowship Seminar

The Institute's Fellowship Programme is designed for candidates who wish to attain Fellowship qualifications in either the arbitration or mediation disciplines.
The Programme is run each year provided a minimum of 6 candidates are registered for each programme. The academic requirements for Fellowship are set out in the Institute's Admission Regulations.

The Fellowship Seminar provides candidates with an opportunity to refresh their knowledge prior to Fellowship testing. It is held 3-4 months prior to the testing days and provides an introduction to the testing programme. The seminar is led by a senior member(s) of the Institute who will not be involved in the testing
programme, therefore is able to provide peer support and coaching for the candidates.

Why undertake Fellowship training?

  • Fellowship is known to be rigorous thus giving the public confidence that Fellows are competent to act as a mediator or arbitrator.
  • The qualification is internationally recognised. Fellows in arbitration have a reciprocal right of Fellowship with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK). (AMINZ is the only Institute world-wide to hold this reciprocal status with CIArb).
  • Qualified Fellows are entitled to use the designatory post-nominal letters FAMINZ(Arb); FAMINZ(Med) and FAMINZ(Arb/Med).

Who Should Undertake the Fellowship Programme?

  • Those wanting to hold themselves out as having the most senior qualification of AMINZ.
  • Associates of the Institute.
  • Those who have completed the Massey University dispute resolution programme or have sufficient training and / or experience to satisfy AMINZ Associate status.
