I have completed my LLB and I'm currently doing my LPC.I have been recently drawn to arbitration instead of litigation as a career. However, I have no idea as to the qualifications and experience needed.What could be some useful sources of information? Do I need a further qualification?

Bunch of ways to get into it. Most common is to become a lawyer (normally a barrister), do that till you get a good rep, and then become an arb.

Remember, an arbitrator is a judge of private tribunals. You're gonna need to be familiar with making arguments to tribunals and courts, generally speaking, before you're someone who has the expertise to be trusted to settle disputes.

Thanks for attaching those links! They seem like a good start for my research.
I am still a student but I'd like to get some experience to see if I would be actually good in ADR. I am mostly interested in IP, commercial (international trade and goods).

I'm currently doing the LPC to become a solicitor and we briefly looked at procedures in ADR.
What would you suggest in terms of getting that experience?
