Austrian Arbitration Academy - Arbitration Rules in Practice


The Austrian Arbitration Academy - Arbitration Rules in Practice, is an intensive, four-day program on international commercial arbitration from an institutional perspective.

Jointly organized by the Vienna International Arbitral Centre, the Young Austrian Arbitration Practitioners, the Austrian Arbitration Association and the Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna, this program has been specifically devised for participants with first experience in the area of international arbitration.

Professor Paul Oberhammer acts as course director of the Arbitration Academy, while Dr. Alice Fremuth-Wolf is co-director of the Austrian Arbitration Academy - Arbitration Rules in Practice on behalf of VIAC.

The course will consist of a taught module and participation in the Vienna Arbitration Days (registration fee included). The classes will be taught by first class international arbitration practitioners from both the bar and academia.

Following a keynote speech, participants will enjoy two days of interactive classes. The course will mirror the structure of an (administered) arbitration and will discuss salient issues of international arbitration, in particular practical problems that might be encountered frequently. Throughout the course, the focus will lie on institutional arbitration proceedings. The last session on Thursday will consist of a mock organizational hearing.

Dachgeschoß, Juridicum, Tuesday, February 21, to Saturday, February 25, 2017
