ARBITRATION TRAINING PROGRAMME
Our unique training approach to arbitration introduces participants to arbitration both in theory and in practice. In our training sessions we teach participants to understand the principles of arbitration and offer them guidance on implementation of these principles.
Understanding the essential arbitration principles is key to a successful arbitration practice because of their universal nature in the practice of arbitration worldwide. We streamline our arbitration training along two basic modules: Arbitration Advocacy and Arbitration Practice.
