ICC YAF: How to raise your profile in the arbitration network?

Cambridge, United Kingdom, • English

The event will examine how professional links and connections help or not young practitioners in the world of arbitration.


ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing a conference on the eve of the 6th annual Cambridge Arbitration Day.

A panel will discuss and debate, among others, the following topics:

  • Arbitration Events: Should you go to them? How to introduce yourself and air your views?
  • Elevating your profile in public: friend or foe?
  • Should you display your professional experience?
  • Social Media: Connections, posts, likes, and effect on your arbitration career.
  • Institutional perspective: What is the role of arbitral institutions in promoting or even regulating the issues?

This ICC YAF event will be followed by a cocktail reception, organised by the Cambridge Arbitration Day.

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.
