Spring 2018
LAW579  AS  FORENSICS OF ADVOCACY IN INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION II

Course Description
This is the second 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 Spring course segment covers the hearing phase, including pre-hearing preparation, oral arguments, and witness examination.

The intensive Course will incorporate frequent practical exercises including preparation of fact and expert witnesses, negotiation of contentious issues, oral advocacy, and drafting. Students will act in the roles of arbitrators, counsel, and witnesses. Completion of “Forensics of Advocacy I” (D. González and L. Sobota) in the Fall semester is required to enroll.

Course Schedule
[TBD] [Envisaged schedule to take place over the course of 1-2 weeks, not consecutive weeks necessarily, and possibly including some Saturday classes]
