Course Description

Useful for both international and domestic arbitrations, this course provides an in-depth introduction to the law and practice of international commercial arbitration including the legal framework; the role of the courts, arbitral institutions and tribunals; the main elements of effective arbitration agreements; the selection of the tribunal and challenges to members of the tribunal; jurisdictional issues; interim measures; pre-hearing procedure and the conduct of the evidentiary hearing; and how awards may be challenged or enforced. Using a workshop format with a range of demonstrations and exercises, the course follows a mock arbitration from commencement of the proceedings through the presentation of expert evidence to challenging or enforcing the award.

With a focus on both substantive and procedural law in this area, this interactive course allows students to develop and hone the specialized written and oral advocacy skills required for international commercial arbitrations.
