This fourth annual event is designed to help experienced professionals hone their skills and understand the challenges arbitrators face. Held at the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) headquarters in Paris, the intensive two-and-a-half-day workshop covers critical theoretical concepts and practical aspects involved in conducting an international arbitration. These include establishing authority over parties, conducting hearings and drafting enforceable awards. The chairman of the training, ICC International Court of Arbitration member Fernando Mantilla-Serrano, said a highlight of the programme would be the quality of the faculty and its structure.
“Counsel will get the arbitrator’s perspective when they might just be used to getting the perspective of the parties they represent,” he said.
The course will include presentations and discussions based on mock cases, led by experts and practitioners in the field, as well as representatives from the ICC International Court of Arbitration.
Of particular note, the new ICC 2012 Rules of Arbitration’s Emergency Arbitrator provisions will be addressed by Jose Ricardo Feris, Deputy Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration.
