Internship – ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR (Paris)

The ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR is looking for a motivated intern from April to September 2024.

As the institutional representative of over 45 million businesses in more than 170 countries, the International Chamber of Commerce operates with a core mission to “make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere”.

We act as the primary voice of the real economy in a range of intergovernmental organisations – from the World Trade Organisation to the UN climate process – championing the needs of local business in global decision making.

The convening power of our global network enables us to set rules and standards that facilitate over $10 trillion dollars in trade each year – as well as providing tailored products and digital services that directly address the real challenges faced by businesses operating internationally.

We also provide the world’s premier private global dispute resolution services, leveraging ICC’s unique independence, integrity and expertise.

The ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR, the ICC Dispute Resolution Services (‘DRS’)’s unique think tank, plays a key role in enabling thought leadership in arbitration and ADR. In its research capacity, the Commission studies legal, procedural, and practical aspects of dispute prevention and resolution in the interest of access to justice. To adapt to the latest legislative and technological developments, the Commission gathers expertise from over 1,300 Delegates from more than 100 countries comprising lawyers, in-house counsel, arbitrators, mediators, academics and experts in various dispute resolution fields and sectors. 

The Commission’s leading Reports and Guides provide guidance, tools, recommendations, model clauses as well as input on proposed adoption and modification of ICC DRS Rules.

The ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR internship offers students unique insights and in-depth knowledge of international arbitration law and dispute resolution. The Commission is currently looking for an intern for a period of six months, starting in April 2024 to join their team.
