International Arbitration Training

Mediation and Arbitration


For many companies, intellectual property has become an essential business asset as well as a means of creating value. It is being exploited on an increasingly international level in various forms of collaborative arrangements, such as licenses and technology transfer and R&D agreements. As a consequence, parties increasingly look for dispute resolution mechanisms that match their business requirements: private procedures which provide efficient, flexible and less costly means of settling international disputes without disrupting commercial relationships.


By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • Knowledge and understanding on the requirements for a valid arbitration agreement and its enforceability
  • Understanding of the role of lex arbitri and the substantive law
  • Analysis of the role of the court and the ways that the arbitral seat can intervene in the process of arbitration
  • A guide on rules and practices applicable for enforceable domestic awards and the grounds for challenging awards
  • An understanding of the powers and duties of arbitrators and practical guidance on how to conduct arbitral proceedings and communicate effectively with the parties
