The sessions are chaired by discussion leaders who are all very experienced international arbitration practitioners. During the course of two days, they raise and discuss with the participants key legal and practical questions, as they arise in the successive stages of an international arbitration, illustrating them with examples from real cases. All the sessions are led jointly by two practitioners, one with a common law background and the other with a civil law background, thus bringing to bear, in a lively debate, the diversity of experiences in international arbitration and encouraging the development of cross-cultural sensitivity.
Who should attend? This is not a seminar for true beginners. It is designed for those - arbitrators, counsel, in-house lawyers, experts - who wish to continue building on their international arbitration knowledge and practice and to benefit from the discussion leaders’ combined experience and expertise, acquired in a great variety of arbitrations proceedings in different jurisdictions. Participants themselves contribute to the debate with their own experience, questions and ideas.
