If you want to specialize in international arbitration you should ask yourself whether you are knowledgeable about international procedural law, whether you have sharp communication and language skills and whether you have a good sense of the financials underlying a dispute. In short: do you speak international arbitration?

What our students and teachers say


“I was extremely impressed by the academic quality of the IASC program and the excellent atmosphere among the participants. The students were capable, motivated and highly international. Thanks to their diverse backgrounds, the classroom discussions were challenging and insightful. I greatly recommend this program to young arbitration practitioners and students interested in the field”.

Anne Marie Whitesell – Georgetown University

“The first edition of IASC Madrid was impressive. The course gathered a very diverse class of students from all over the world, who were greatly motivated and showed a keen interest in international arbitration. The program struck an excellent balance between theoretical classes and practice-oriented workshops, and provided students with firsthand exposure to the workings of international arbitration. Various networking activities and seminars organized with the international and domestic law firms in Madrid also allowed students to get direct contact with the leading practitioners in the field”.

Michele Potestà – Lévy Kaufmann-Kohler

“The best part of the course was the moot case. It allowed us to have the opportunity to show what we had learned and to apply it, while getting a taste of the day to day in this field. Moreover, the opportunity to work in groups allowed us to work with people from different nationalities and backgrounds”.
