Singapore is scheduled to host the first International Arbitration Academy from November 26 to December 14, 2012.
The Academy was jointly established by the Center for International Law and the Faculty of Law in National University of Singapore to train lawyers in Asia. It aspires to become Asia's premier arbitration training program.
The Academy will provide training in two tracks. A Practicing Counsel Track will focus on the knowledge and skills necessary to represent clients in arbitral proceedings A Government Advisor/Instructing Solicitor Track will address issues such as the selection, instruction and management of hired counsel.
Only 60 participants will be enrolled in the inaugural session. They will learn from 40 leading practitioners, arbitrators and public officials from around the world.
Singapore intends to become a leading player in international arbitration and the preferred venue to settle commercial disputes in Asia.
