LAW578  AS  FORENSICS OF ADVOCACY IN INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION I

Course Description
This is the first installment in a two-semester simulation of arbitral proceedings, covering all practical aspects of an investment arbitration from the genesis of a dispute to a plenary hearing. The Fall course segment focuses on the initial stages of an arbitration, including the filing of a request for arbitration, selection of arbitrators, document production, and preparation of written submissions (including legal memoranda and expert and witness statements).

The intensive Course will incorporate weekly practical exercises including inter alia research, negotiation of contentious issues (mock case management conference), and drafting. Successful completion of this Course is a prerequisite for enrollment in “Forensics of Advocacy in International Arbitration II” (D. Gonzalez & L. Sobota) in the Spring semester.
