Dear Young ICCA Members,
On behalf of Young ICCA we are pleased to invite you to attend a Young ICCA arbitration skills training workshop taking place on 7 October 2013 in Boston, USA. The workshop will follow the Annual Conference of the International Bar Association held in Boston from 6 – 11 October 2013.
There are 20 spots available for Young ICCA members to attend the event. The workshop will also be attended by approximately 15 young arbitration practitioners based in Boston.
The topic of the Boston workshop is “Discovery in International Arbitration”. The seminar will focus on the role of a young practitioner in the discovery process, including the review, preparation and request of documentary evidence. The faculty of the seminar includes Edward Baldwin – Senior Associate, Milbank; Ania Farren – Special Counsel, K&L Gates; Sabine Konrad – Partner, McDermott Will & Emery; Klaus Reichert – Brick Court Chambers; Ashley Riveiera – Counsel, Crowell & Moring; Guido Tawil – Professor of Law, University of Buenos Aires; and Freddy Sourgens – Professor of Law, Washburn University.
The seminar is hosted by Young ICCA with kind support of McDermott Will & Emery and other prominent sponsors.
Young ICCA has arranged for accommodation in Boston for the nights of 6th and 7th October 2013 in a centrally located hotel provided free of charge. Young ICCA has also arranged for breakfast to be served at the workshop itself. Each participant is required to arrange their own transportation to and from Boston and within the city itself, including incidental expenses. Participants are also responsible for meeting any immigration particulars and visa requirements necessary to attend the event.
Participants will be selected in the following few weeks from those who respond first.
Please direct your applications and any other questions to Andreea Balan-Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org and quote “YICCA Boston”.
