CLOSING RECEPTION

During the week-long seminar, Project Director, DR. HORACIO A.

On this occasion, the seminar will feature sessions that are primarily from the perspective of the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce.

Through introductory and interactive lectures, including a mock arbitration, this seminar will teach skills, strategies, and tactics for successfully conducting international arbitration cases on various factual and legal bases. The seminar will discuss the preparation and filing of an arbitration request, the organization of arbitral proceedings, the production of evidence, and how to conduct an arbitral hearing and draft an arbitral award. Participants will be led through various case scenarios that arise in the practice of international arbitration and be trained in ways to resolve them.
