2006 Cooperating Institutions

International arbitration is today a flourishing legal practice area posing diverse and unique challenges to legal practitioners all over the world and has become the recognized dispute resolution method for international commercial disputes.

The International Arbitration Program has developed an intensive annual seminar designed to provide insights for handling arbitration cases and training legal practitioners to manage cases effectively in an international context. The seminar was conceptualized in collaboration with our co-sponsoring institutions, the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC); the American Arbitration Association; and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes.

Since 2004, the program has organized, among other activities, seminars centering on mock arbitration cases under the rules of arbitration of our co-sponsoring institutions. This year’s seminar will feature a mock case that will be discussed principally
from the perspective of the ICC Rules of Arbitration and will feature Dr. Horacio A. Grigera Naón, along with a distinguished faculty composed of key international arbitration experts.

This exclusive seminar has been developed to help private practitioners and in-house counsel meet the challenges
of this exciting practice area. Handling international arbitration cases, either as counsel or arbitrator, requires specialized expertise that varies from case to case. At this four-day seminar, a group of distinguished experts will teach participants the skills, strategies, and tactics to successfully handle, either as counsel or arbitrator, oil and gas industry cases using interactive lectures and mock arbitration exercises.

The seminar will discuss:

  • the preparation and filing of an arbitration request;
  • the answer to a request for arbitration;
  • the organization of arbitral proceedings;
  • the production of evidence;
  • how to conduct an arbitral hearing; and,
  • the making of an arbitral award.
