In an effort to facilitate the growth of expertise in dispute resolution through a mentoring approach, a pupillage scheme has been developed. The purpose of this scheme is to facilitate interested parties in gaining opportunities to observe and learn from working practitioners. This Procedure has been developed for use with the Engineers Ireland panels of arbitrators, conciliators mediators and adjudicators, whose members are actively encouraged to take on and mentor suitable candidates as the opportunity presents itself. The Pupillage Procedure may be used by third-party neutrals who are not members of the Engineers Ireland panels, and also by other institutions engaged in the dispute resolution area.
