Law, Practice and Procedure of International Arbitration Course in Athens

26 Jul 2019

CIArb European branch in collaboration with the Athens Mediation and Arbitration Organization (EODID) and NOMIKI BIBLIOTHIKI, is organizing the Course “Module 1 - Law, Practice and Procedure of International Arbitration”, which will be held in Athens in September - November 2019.

After successful completion of the course, participants will be eligible to apply for Member status with CIArb and take advantage of a range of educational and professional benefits.

The purpose of the course is to provide candidates with a detailed knowledge of the procedural elements of international arbitration, using legislation based on the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law, regional arbitration law, and the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules to enable them to understand and participate in such proceedings. The course focuses on legal principles, process, practice and procedure in international arbitration.

The course is therefore valuable for anyone wishing to understand this topic generally, for example as a party, party representative or witness. It will attract lawyers as well as students interested in this field.

George Lambrou, FCIArb, Co-Director of Training at the European Branch of the CIArb commented:

“Arbitration has been practised in Greece since at least the times of Homer so I am particularly pleased that CIArb will be joining the Nomiki Vivliothiki and the EODID Athens Mediation & Arbitration Organization to conduct Module 1 Law, Practice and Procedure of International Arbitration, in Athens – a birthplace of arbitration”

Further details are available in the course flyer.

The course is organised in collaboration with partnering organisations:
