Although the practice area of international commercial arbitration has flourished within the last decade due to the emergence of a global economy, the existence and availability of training for individuals interested in serving as international arbitrators remains extremely limited. The few programmes that exist are either available only to individuals appointed to panels of arbitrators maintained by arbitral institutions, or are extremely expensive and involve weeks of training, thus making them impractical for most working professionals. Accordingly, the ICC Institute launches its second annual ICC Institute Masterclass for Arbitrators.
This training will provide participants with an opportunity to reinforce their knowledge of the fundamentals of international commercial arbitration and to learn about the latest developments and best practices related to serving as an international arbitrator. In keeping with its commitment to excellence, the ICC has recruited some of the worldâ€™s leading scholars and practitioners as faculty for this important event. Participants will have the rare opportunity to learn firsthand from these leading practitioners and to develop helpful contacts with arbitration practitioners from around the world. The course will consist of presentations and interactive discussions using mock cases designed to hone participantsâ€™ understanding of critical theoretical concepts while also emphasizing many practical aspects involved in conducting an international arbitration.
Attendees should understand that the objective of this course is solely to provide training with respect to serving as an arbitrator and completion of the course will not result in students being awarded any type of certification or accreditation by the ICC In terms of their fitness to serve as international arbitrators.
Who should attend?
This advanced level training is designed primarily for practitioners who have significant experience in international commercial arbitration as counsel, but who have little or no experience as arbitrators. Attendees are expected to have already mastered the essentials of arbitral proceedings and ICC Arbitration, as these will not be reviewed during the Masterclass. Please note that a Curriculum Vitae is requested upon registration as candidates will be accepted depending on their experience.
