Special Courses will be taught by Professor Andrea Bjorklund, Professor Susan Franck, Professor Horacio Grigera Naón, Professor Alain Prujiner, and Professor Brigitte Stern.

The 2013 Workshops and Seminars will be offered by the ICC (José Ricardo Féris), ICSID (Paul Jean Le Cannu), DIAC (Nassib G. Ziadé) and the PCA (Brooks Daly).
