ICC Unveils New Online Training in International Arbitration

The International Chamber of Commerce has unveiled its new “ICC Arbitration online training,” the first official e-learning course to explain the inside workings of international arbitration and the 2012 ICC Rules of Arbitration.

From the comfort of their computer, Arbitration aficionados can now follow eight hours of lessons on ICC Arbitration as a method of dispute resolution, drawn up by the ICC International Court of Arbitration’s secretariat staff and Yves Derains, chair of the ICC Institute of World Business Law and former secretary general of the ICC International Court of Arbitration.

“As an addition to ICC’s traditional arbitration training, this e-learning package is invaluable,” said Mr. Derains. “It means we can provide a clear, insider’s explanation to anyone starting out in arbitration, or preparing for their first ICC Arbitration, wherever they’re based.”

Andrea Carlevaris, the Court’s current secretary general, added: “ICC Arbitration online training is accessible and well-structured. I expect we’ll see it benefiting individuals and companies throughout the international arbitration community.”

The conference will focus on new developments in energy and infrastructure disputes, as well as recent developments, hot topics and enforcement issues in the Middle East and Latin America. Click here
