DIAC to host training on techniques to handle international arbitration cases

Dubai International Arbitration Centre (DIAC), an initiative of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is organising a training course on “Practical Techniques for Handling International Commercial Arbitration Cases”, in collaboration with the Centre for the Transnational Law (Central) Cologne University, on September 23-25, 2013.

The three-day training course, which will be organised for the fifth consecutive year, will be held at Dubai Chamber’s head office. It is a unique opportunity for practitioners to develop their skills in commercial arbitration.

The course is based on highly practical and highly interactive teaching concepts, including practical exercises, interactive workshops and mock cases.

Updated for this year will be a new focus on interim measures, including emergency arbitrator provisions, the challenge of arbitrators and guidance on written and oral advocacy as well as case management techniques, including the use and legal effect of Terms of Reference.

Course instructors are: Professor Dr. Klaus Peter Berger, Centre for Transnational Law, University of Cologne and President of the German Institution of Arbitration; and Victor Leginsky, Chartered Arbitrator and CEDR-certified Mediator, Dubai.

The training is part of efforts by DIAC to promote the use of alternative dispute resolution, such as commercial arbitration, by Dubai’s business community.
