At the Forefront of International Arbitration


The Center on International Commercial Arbitration provides a high-level academic forum for exchanging ideas on salient issues and current developments in the field of arbitration. The Center offers an LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law, online certificate courses in commercial and investment arbitration, a Summer Institute, a Practical Seminar, and an introduction to international arbitration for judges. The Center also organizes two moot arbitration competitions, an Annual Lecture, and a bi-annual Symposium, besides other conferences and workshops. 

The Center is directed by Horacio A. Grigera Naón, independent international arbitrator and former secretary general of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce. The Center also benefits from the knowledge and strategic advice of a Board consisting of many of the most highly respected arbitrators and practitioners in the field.
