Arbitration Law

Semester 2

Total number of hours : 30


Many organizations like the ICC, the London Court of International Arbitration, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the American Arbitration Association, etc. provide companies with very detailed arbitration rules and offer efficient arbitration services (appointing authority, court of arbitration...).

This phenomenon illustrates the traditional reluctance of business persons to refer their legal disputes to official jurisdictions. The said phenomenon is particularly stringent in international transactions, where arbitration is very often used instead of difficult choices of applicable law and jurisdiction.

The course will deal with the rationale of arbitration law and will focus on some of the major arbitration institutions and their arbitration rules.
