It is the first program that combines an in-depth academic program with the practical insight provided by a large number of international practitioners who lecture during the program. This sophisticated program demands from the participant in-depth preparation for each session, and active participation during the course which includes pleading training on the basis of mock cases, role plays of arbitration-related scenarios, drafting sessions to learn how to draft written submissions and interactive discussions on cutting-edge arbitration topics. This program is organized in four modules:
