The course will be held into two parts. In the first part a systematic overview over International Arbitration will be offered, with a special focus on commercial cases. The main issues covered are the functioning of important arbitral institutions such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the different stages of the arbitral proceedings, including the drafting of the arbitration agreement, the question of the applicable law, the procedural rules and the enforcement of the award. The second part of the block lecture will be a case study. The subject of this case study will be located in the field of international commercial arbitration. Students will be divided into two groups in order to prepare a simulation of arbitral proceedings on the case in front of the Tribunal. The Tribunal will be addressed by students on Nov 16. After the hearings and the final award rendered by the Tribunal there will be a final session which is dedicated to commentaries on the case as well as feedback on students’ performance.
