This Blockseminar aims to provide a comprehensive, practically oriented overview of the rapidly expanding area of law and practice of international commercial arbitration.

The course is designed for German and other law students with fluency in English who are contemplating pursuit of a career, particularly in the private law firm context, involving international commercial arbitration and other dispute resolution in or related to Germany and, for that matter, abroad.  The theoretical and practical emphasis is, in roughly equal measure, on civil law, common law and established best practice approaches. 

For those who attended the recent prior course "International Investment Arbitration", this course represents a considerably more focused and intensive discussion of international commercial arbitration, as well as the role of such disputes in the overall fabric of transnational arbitration and international commercial law.
