ICC YAF : Making Your Case Effectively: Tips for a Successful Arbitration

Bucharest, Romania, • English

The ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is co-organizing with Herbert Smith Freehills and Suciu Popa Attorneys an ICC YAF Conference entitled “Making Your Case Effectively: Tips for a Successful Arbitration”. This conference will take place in Bucharest on 6 October 2016.


The event will focus on providing participants with tools for effective advocacy in arbitration. A myriad of factors specific to arbitration – rules, languages, legal systems, nationalities, laws, businesses, states, cultures – requires good advocacy skills to be efficiently (and successfully) handled. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from experienced international arbitration practitioners their views, practices, best strategies. And tips and traps. The ICC YAF Conference will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to enrich their network in the region.
