Aaron Moore, an RICS Diploma in Adjudication in the Construction Industry student, has won the CIArb Student of the Year 2018 award and received the CIArb President’s Award for decision writing.
Moore is Head of Contentious Construction at Cleaver Fulton Rankin, a full-service law firm in Northern Ireland. He received his award at a prize ceremony on 6 December 2018. A panel of judges decided the winner based on written submissions from recognised providers of CIArb fellowship courses.
He was nominated for the award by the RICS Dispute Resolution Service as a result of his outstanding achievement on the Diploma in Adjudication course, which he completed in April 2018.
The course focused my attention on case law specific to adjudication and the construction industry. It has furthered my professional qualifications and helped me to garner trust and respect from leading clients in the construction industry.

With more than 10 years' post-qualification experience in respect of disputes in the construction industry, Moore chose to study the diploma to gain an industry-specific qualification. He feels his clients gain comfort in the knowledge he has a specific qualification in adjudication and would recommend the diploma to others wanting to gain industry specific qualifications.
“The course focused my attention on case law specific to adjudication and the construction industry. It has furthered my professional qualifications and helped me to garner trust and respect from leading clients in the construction industry,” Moore said.
The Diploma in Adjudication in the Construction Industry is a Level 5 qualification which consists of four units, and is based on the National Occupation Standards developed by the Construction Industry Council. On successful completion of this Level 5 qualification, you will meet the relevant National Occupational Standards and be able to seek fee-earning work as an adjudicator.
