On May 13-17, 2019, the CIArb New York Branch and Columbia Law School presented their fifth annual Columbia - CIArb Comprehensive Course on International Arbitration hosted on this occasion by Debevoise & Plimpton LLP. As in past years, the Comprehensive Course attracted registrants from around the world, including arbitration practitioners from Argentina, Brazil, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sri Lanka as well as from Canada and the United States.

The faculty, consisting of leading practitioners, academics and institutional representatives, were once again led by course directors Professor George Bermann, Institute President Thomas Halket, and NY Branch Chair Richard Mattiaccio.  Dr. Kabir Duggal, an international arbitration practitioner and lecturer at Columbia, joined the course director and faculty ranks this year.  

In keeping with a pattern established in prior years, a number of registrants for the Comprehensive Course participated as well in the Accelerated Route to Fellowship assessment offered by the New York Branch during the week following the Comprehensive Course.

The customary reception held at the end of the first day of the Comprehensive Course was made particularly festive this year by the presentation of the New York Branch Patron Medal to Professor Bermann.
