Arb40 Subcommittee

This Subcommittee was established for younger arbitrators aged 40 or below and reflects the Arbitration Committee’s aim of engaging more actively with the younger members of the arbitration community. It is led by a Steering Committee focused on thought leadership for the next generation of arbitration practitioners. Through this thought leadership the IBA Arb 40 Steering Committee has produced a series of reports and is actively involved in organising workshops and symposia for younger arbitration practitioners. All expressions of interest in becoming involved in the work of this Subcommittee should be directed to the officers.


The Subcommittee launched a competition to gather meaningful stories about our shared experiences in arbitration and in August 2023, published the winning entries in a unique compendium.
