Scholarship Opportunity for Prospective LLM Students!

This three-week Summer Program exposes practitioners and advanced students to critical skills and practical insights into handling arbitration cases under various arbitration systems. The program brings together world-renowned practitioners and arbitrators who will present six seminars designed for professional development. 

The summer curriculum was carefully designed with the idea of providing participants a comprehensive understanding of how international commercial arbitration works. The program begins with general courses during the first week and continues with more specific issues. The program also offers a practical seminar combining lectures and role play in order to provide students with a practical perspective. Luncheons and networking activities provide participants with the opportunity to exchange information and interact with their peers and expert instructors.

Sessions can be taken for Certificate of Attendance, Certificate of Completion (Diploma) and CLE Credit.
