ICC International Court of Arbitration is hosting a weekend conference in Barcelona 27 to 29 June for lawyers and in-house counsel under the age of 40. The conference marks the launch of the new Young Arbitrators Forum YAF by ICC to strengthen links with the young arbitration community. The conference will be held in collaboration with the YAF US chapter.
Jason Fry, Secretary General of ICC International Court of Arbitration said that the ICC Court is delighted to welcome young arbitration practitioners and corporate counsel to learn from some of the worlds most distinguished arbitrators and professionals. This is the first of what we hope will be an ongoing programme of events tailored to the new generation of arbitration professionals.
The conference is an opportunity for young lawyers and in-house counsel working in international arbitration to receive training from world-renowned arbitrators, members of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, and the ICC Secretariat. The weekend course will offer six hours of academic training with the stars and rising stars of arbitration. Plenary sessions, informal debates, and workshops held in parallel have all been designed for in-house counsel and lawyers.
