Event Information

Learn International Commercial Arbitration Practice under the guidance of world's leading Arbitration Practitioners!

As businesses continue to expand globally, lawyers need to be able to provide legal advice and services that meet their clients' needs. This includes being able to advise clients on the advantages and disadvantages of international commercial arbitration as a means of resolving disputes.

International commercial arbitration has become increasingly popular due to its flexibility and efficiency. It allows parties to resolve disputes outside of court, saving time and money. Additionally, it provides parties with greater control over the outcome of their dispute by allowing them to choose their arbitrators and determine the rules governing the proceedings. 

Lawyers who have expertise in international commercial arbitration are in high demand, particularly in law firms that specialize in cross-border transactions. Learning about international commercial arbitration can therefore enhance a lawyer's career prospects and increase their value to potential employers.

This is a booming field for lawyers, especially with the onset of recent Bar Council of India (BCI) regulations allowing foreign law firms and foreign lawyers to practice international commercial arbitration matters in India. This has opened up new avenues for budding lawyers, practicing lawyers, and others interested in this field.

Therefore, Bettering Results (BR) has curated next batch of very specialised course with practical knowledge sessions by the world’s top arbitration practitioners from Indian as well as foreign law firms. 

This course will take you through the basics of international commercial arbitration to the procedure followed internationally, challenges faced, drafting of arbitration clauses etc.

Learn the practicalities of International Commercial Arbitration LIVE from the top arbitration experts in the world who have represented clients in arbitrations before the LCIA, ICC, ICADR, ICA and SIAC, as well as the Supreme Court of India and various High Courts.

This course includes a simulation exercise where the participants will be required to present their case based on the facts provided and argue in front of real leading arbitrators. This simulation exercise on mock arbitration hearing will be an effective way for participants to gain practical experience and develop the skills they need to be successful in international commercial arbitration.

The course kickstarts on September 17, 2023, and sessions shall take place over weekends.
