Abstract

The year 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. A hundred years is certainly not a long period of time in the history of an institution. The University of Oxford, for example, has over 800 years of history. What is remarkable about the first hundred years of the Institute’s lifespan is how much has been accomplished. The Institute was the first ever learned society to be devoted to the teaching of what we could describe as “modern arbitration,” the first institution to publish a journal dedicated exclusively to arbitration, the first institution to offer an arbitration-related membership programme and, equally, the first institution entitled to confer a designated status in the form of post-nominal letters in the area of arbitration. This article surveys some of the Institute's achievements over the last century.
