The Center on International Commercial Arbitration has developed this intensive annual seminar designed to provide insights for handling arbitration cases and training legal practitioners to manage cases effectively in an international context.

This three-day intensive seminar based on a mock arbitration case will provide critical skills and practical insight into handling Distribution and Agency Issues primarily from the perspective of the Rules of Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association's International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR).

Through dynamic interactive lectures and scenario-based exercises, participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups in constant debate with international experts and will be taught skills, strategies, and tactics for successfully conducting Distribution and Agency Issues issues in international Arbitration.

The faculty, composed of leading practitioners in the field, will draw upon their experience as arbitrators and litigators to give detailed practical guidance on the various stages of the arbitration.

Seminar topics include:• the preparation and filing of an arbitration request;• the answer to a request for arbitration;• the organization of arbitral proceedings;• the production of evidence;• how to conduct an arbitral hearing; and,• the making of an arbitral award.
