Optional pre-course evening workshop
 
 
Date
22 September 2013
4:00am-7:00pm
 
Venue

DESCRIPTION
International commercial arbitration remains a practical and efficient means of dispute resolution for business and trade world-wide. However, as practical as it is, international commercial arbitration requires some rules and norms in order to have the predictability and certainty that business requires. Some arbitrators and representatives who are not lawyers have found it challenging to concentrate on the practical, hands-on scenarios and mock arbitration work used in this course because they are unfamiliar with the basic legal framework of international commercial arbitration. As a result, some former participants have requested a pre-course workshop to become familiar with the legal concepts that will be used in the course. In this optional pre-course workshop we will explain the source, scope and effect of various laws and rules (statute vs. private; mandatory vs. non-mandatory) that bear on international arbitration.
 
Please note that this pre-course workshop is a basic level familiarization course aimed primarily at non-lawyers who have not had significant experience in presenting or arbitrating international arbitration cases and who feel they lack familiarity with legal terminology.  
  
This pre-course workshop is only open to participants of the main, 3-day course and has a nominal extra charge.
