Addressed to professionals with sound knowledge of this area and students who have already completed the LL.M. courses in International Commercial Arbitration or Investment Arbitration, this course, which relies on contributions by experienced counsel and arbitrators, addresses specialised problems arising in the practice of international arbitration. In order to propose a wide range of themes, topics will change each year and may include: the extension of arbitration agreements to non-signatories, parallel proceedings, interim measures, applicable law and overriding mandatory provisions, the taking of evidence, confidentiality and privileges, third party-funding, and/or issues raised in international arbitration in specific jurisdictions. In view of the forthcoming Singapore Convention on Mediation, students will also benefit from courses on the theory, process & key skills (active listening, managing emotions, negotiation, etc.) required to effectively mediate commercial disputes.
