International Arbitration


Course Objective

The objectives of this course are to promote academic education and to
encourage critical and independent thinking. Upon completion of the
course, the student will be able to practice professionally in the field
of arbitration. To this effect, the course discusses realistic problems
so that students will be able to resolve such legal problems on a sound
theoretical and pragmatic basis.

Course Content

discussion of procedural aspects of international investment
arbitration. Students are expected to be familiar with basic concepts of
private international law.
The course focuses on a combination of practical and theoretical issues.

life, examples (such as drafting appropriate arbitration clauses).
