Featured Course in Spanish!

Developed at the request of our partners in Latin America, the course “Arbitraje Comercial Internacional,” is a Spanish alternative to the “Nuts and Bolts” course
and an attractive option for firms with increasing caseloads in Latin America to expose their attorneys to an arbitration context in Spanish.

El curso Arbitraje Comercial Internacional puede ser tomado por crédito académico o diploma y está a cargo de Horacio Grigera Naón. El mismo tendrá lugar del 26 al 29 de Mayo de 2009 13 a 16 hs.

El curso tiene por objeto brindar una introducción general al arbitraje comercial internacional e incluye los siguientes temas: elementos básicos del arbitraje internacional, el acuerdo arbitral, cómo redactar una cláusula de arbitraje, el derecho aplicable, inicio del arbitraje, la constitución y organización del tribunal arbitral, imparcialidad e independencia de los árbitros, conducción del proceso,
audiencias arbitrales y reconocimiento y ejecución de los laudos arbitrales.
