This event will provide a unique and entertaining opportunity to young lawyers to develop practical skills in preparing hearings and good advocacy, as well as meet other young lawyers interested and practicing in the field. It will be the first such workshop to take place in Australia.
Young ICCA is pleased to invite you to attend a Young ICCA International Arbitration Skills Workshop which will take place in Sydney on Friday, 6 December 2013.
The seminar is hosted by Young ICCA in co-operation with the CIArb Young Members International Arbitration Forum (CIArb YMIAF), the Asia-Pacific Forum for International Arbitration (AFIA) and the International Law Committee of the Young Lawyers NSW, and with the kind support of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration and the Australian International Disputes Centre.
Since Young ICCA was established in 2010, Young ICCA International Arbitration Skills Workshops have been conducted around the world from Seoul to Johannesburg (for more information see http://www.arbitration-icca.org/YoungICCA/Home.html). This will be the first held in Australia.
The topic of the Workshop is particularly relevant to younger practitioners who are often largely responsible for important practical and logistical preparations for arbitration hearings, ranging from selecting and organising the venue, creating hearing bundles, dealing with interpreters and transcribers as well as supporting the oral advocate before and during the hearing.
The Sydney Workshop will be lead by a Faculty of leading arbitration specialists from around the world who will share their experiences, insights and tips, each having prepared hearings in a large number of arbitrations. This interactive event will provide a unique and entertaining opportunity to develop practical skills in preparing hearings and good advocacy, as well as meet other young lawyers interested and practicing in the field.
Those wishing to apply for the workshop, need to complete the application form attached to the flyer and submit it to email@example.com.
Registrations open at 8.45am and the Workshop will conclude at 12.30 pm, with a mid-morning break for refreshments, providing an opportunity to meet and discuss with other attendees as well as the Faculty.
