ICC YAF: Pathways to arbitration

Prague, Czech Republic, • English

Join this ICC YAF Conference to discuss on how to break into international arbitration and to know more about non-monetary claims.


In the first panel, young practitioners with diverse backgrounds will discuss and debate the question of how to break into international arbitration. They will share their personal experiences and offer advice to students and other young practitioners who wish to pursue a career in this field.

The second panel will address the issue of non-monetary claims in international arbitration, such as requests for declaratory relief, for specific performance or for a modification of a right or legal relationship. It will, amongst others, address the question of the prerequisites for granting such non-monetary relief and the source and extent of the arbitral tribunal’s power to do so.

This ICC YAF Conference will take place on the eve of the ICC Prague Arbitration Day 2019, a one-day conference focusing on the different perspectives of in-house counsels, lawyers and arbitrators.

Who should attend?

This conference is aimed at young arbitration practitioners of approximately 40 years or under: counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The ICC YAF Conference is an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration and to enrich their network in the region.
