ICC Arbitration: Current Developments

Geneva, 13 & 14 September 2019

What is this program about ?

The ICC, one of the world’s most important arbitration institutions, evolves, changes, and updates itself. These changes have an impact on the way one should ideally approach ICC arbitrations, on the strategies one should pursue to be effective counsels and arbitrators. This two-day program brings together instructors who either have extensive experience of ICC arbitrations, are able to take a step back and explain how things are changing, or who know the ICC from the inside and can provide an informed update of its current developments. A few practitioner-scholars, with a particular ability to observe, complete the lineup of instructors. The program covers the different stages of an ICC arbitration procedure as well as general observations of its current developments.

The course program and schedule are available here.
