Courts Name New Arbitrators

A team of thirty-nine professionals completed training and took the oath as Court Connected Arbitrators under the Supreme Court of Belize in late September.  The Chairman of the Court’s Mediation and Arbitration program, Justice Abel Courtney, addressed the group stating that the future reputation and conduct of the court and any arbitration proceedings is now in their hands. According to Justice Abel, the program is the brainchild of Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin and is the first of its kind.  The arbitrators were trained and certified by Doctor Christopher Malcolm, Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and Chair of the Caribbean Branch and Shan Greer, his Vice-Chair. The arbitrators are described as outstanding members of society and persons of various professional disciplines.  They were selected under a rigorous vetting process by the Court’s National Court Mediation/Arbitration Committee.
