Sixth International Arbitration School
September 24-28, 2012
The last decades of the twentieth century have seen a phenomenal boom in international arbitration, with all the hazards and vagaries that come with sudden success. Anyone dealing with business transactions crossing borders now needs to be familiar with the special features of international commercial arbitration. The five-day Düsseldorf International Arbitration School aims at providing young practitioners, post graduates and advanced students – especially Moot Court participants – with the requisite specific knowledge. The School is based on a highly practical, inter-active teaching concept. Participants get the rare opportunity to improve their skills and knowledge in both the law and practice of international commercial arbitration. The teaching faculty consists of some of the world’s leading arbitration practitioners. The participants may accompany these practitioners on an exciting quest: the search for efficient and fair dispute resolution in a world where there is no „non-national commercial court of compulsory jurisdiction“ - a world where the two major legal systems come together and merge. Each day will have a different theme - with a special focus on manipulation and arbitration on the final day.
Birgit Kurtz will speak on the topic, "Section 1782 and Discovery in Aid of Arbitration Proceedings
