International Arbitration Intensive Training Program, July 23-27, 2018, New York City

Program Description

Sponsored by the International Arbitration & Mediation Training and Assistance Institute (IATAI) in New York City, this one-week program which starts July 23 and ends July 27, 2018, offers intensive, hands-on training in international arbitration. Using a fact pattern based on real cases, the training will simulate the process of a complex international arbitration, including elements that are typically non-public proceedings. Equal emphasis in training will be placed on the oral and written aspects of an international arbitration proceeding, and so all participants should have proficiency in legal English. All participants shall have (1) completed or made significant progress toward a first degree in law; or (2) be licensed to practice law in their home jurisdictions. The program will draw from a mix of U.S. and foreign participants in order to simulate the mixed nationalities and legal cultures of an international arbitration. The primary intended audience are lawyers or law students who do not have already significant experience in international arbitrations and seek an intensive introduction to the field. Upon successful completion of the program requirements, participants will receive certificates of completion. Enrollment is limited. For registration fees, please refer to the Registration tab.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE): This program has been approved for 27.5 CLE credit hours (transitional and nontransitional) in New York. Financial hardship policy is available. For details, please contact IATAI, Ms. Vera Korzun at vkorzun@law.fordham.edu.
