The LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law launches the International Arbitration and Business Law Mentorship Program for its participants. At the AUWCL’s Center on International Commercial Arbitration we know that professional advancement and growth is the result of a continuous process of self-improvement, intellectual curiosity and integrity. There is no mechanical, one-size-fits-all, formula for professional advancement.
The LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law is meant to be a forum of professional exchange on various levels of formal, in-class interaction, mentorship relationships, and informal, social exchange between professionals. With this individualized approach, the mentorship program strengthens the participants’ professional development.
Specifically, the goal of the International Arbitration and Business Law Mentorship Program is to provide professional and personal guidance to students. The Mentorship Program encourages students and alumni to connect with each other and with professionals in the industry. The mentorship program is an excellent networking opportunity, and while it is possible that it might result in an internship or job offer later, this is not an expectation or promise.
At the start of each semester, we will pair a mentor with an LL.M. student. The LL.M. program, thanks to the large alumni pool of the Center on International Commercial Arbitration, is proud to offer a stellar group of experienced and successful arbitration practitioners to serve as mentors. They are from a wide variety of geographical origins, and have various practice focuses within international arbitration.
