7 November 2018
Seoul Academy for International Arbitration (Seoul Academy) is a program organized by the KCAB INTERNATIONAL to provide practical training for future and current arbitration practitioners from diverse legal backgrounds. By attending lectures, engaging in workshops and receiving personal mentoring on various aspects of international arbitration from leading practitioners and arbitrators around the world, participants will have a chance to deepen their knowledge in alternative dispute resolution as well as make valuable connections with fellow arbitration practitioners.
Strong written and oral advocacy skills are critical to success in contemporary international arbitration practice. Dispute resolution practitioners from differing legal cultural traditions and with different native language backgrounds bring different approaches to the processes that we see in global practice today. Building on the success of the past two installments, the 2018 Seoul Academy brings together a distinguished faculty that comprises experienced civil and common law arbitrators and arbitration counsel with rich experience of arbitration involving Korean parties as well as dispute resolution around the world.
The program is unique for its close-knit and interactive format, with opportunities for students to network, establish new professional friendships and continue to be mentored by faculty members beyond the program. Past students have hailed from common and civil law countries across Asia.
