Course Description

In this course, students learn about practical aspects of international commercial arbitration. It is preferable, but not required, that students have already taken a course on International Commercial Arbitration. Students who have successfully completed this course should, among other things: have drafted an arbitration agreement and a request for arbitration; have participated (either as counsel or as arbitrator) in a procedural hearing; have argued the challenge of an arbitrator; have drafted submission to obtain leave to enforce an award; have drafted submissions to obtain the setting aside of an award; recognise the key tactical considerations involved at the different stages of the international arbitration or litigation.


SALEH, Shaparak (Avocat)

Pedagogical format

The course method focuses on case studies, and learning-by-doing putting the participants in the shoes of a counsel or arbitrator or judge in a simulated case. Participants are expected to take an active part in the exercises and discussion sessions.

Course validation

The class is divided into two parts: 1/ international arbitration and 2/ pre- and post-arbitral litigation. Students will get separate grades for both parts of the class, counting each 50% towards the overall grade. For each part, students will be graded equally on their oral participation in class and written papers handed in during the semester. Validation will be based on preparation and participation in class.
