The Janada International Centre for Arbitration and Mediation (JICAM) last Friday commenced the maiden edition of its 2-Day Hybrid Intensive Arbitration Training Program aimed at educating trainees on the rudiments and key elements of Arbitration as well as setting the course for a career pathway in Arbitration and Mediation.

The training program was anchored by the JICAM Governing Council/Faculty Members including Hon. Justice Ibrahim Auta (Rtd) OFR, (Chairman, Governing Council), Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN, C.Arb, Prof. Paul Idornigie SAN C.Arb, Mrs. Diane Okoko FCIArb.(UK), Prof. Ike Ehiribe FCIArb., Dr. Fidele Masengo PhD and Mr. Samuel Kayode Fagade, MCIArb. (Registrar, Governing Council). Participants included aspirants to the Nigerian Bar, young lawyers, non-lawyers and entrepreneurs who attended both virtually and in-person at the venue, J-K Gadzama Court.

JICAM, an initiative pioneered by the renowned Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN, (Chairman, Board of Trustees), had before now been engaged in the following services exclusively: Appointing Authority, Secretarial and Administrative Services, Hearings, Video Conferencing, Transcription, Recording Service, Case Management and Fund Management.

However, with the launch of its maiden edition of the Arbitration Training Program, the institution has expanded its scope from being strictly an Arbitration Centre to a learning portal, having acquired the relevant training license and being constituted with qualified professionals in the field.

According to the centre, “This first edition has so far been an immense success seeing the participation of attendees from different jurisdictions. It is a laudable initiative which offers a golden opportunity to persons desirous of having knowledge in the field of Arbitration.”

In an exclusive interview with the General Manager, Mr. Samuel Fagade, he explained the need for knowledge of Arbitration as the times are changing and disputants seeking more proactive means of resolving disputes. According to him, “the training will offer participants in-depth insight of the concept and general workings of Arbitration while setting them on the right course for future growth if they wish to further their careers along that line.” He also disclosed that the trainees would be issued recognized certificates upon completion of the program.
