Short Course: Cross Border Dispute Resolution

Course Outline

Cross-border dispute resolution is a part of the practice of almost every commercial lawyer and knowledge in this area is essential. Specialised skills are required to manoeuvre through the complex substantive and procedural issues when multiple jurisdictions are involved.

Led by BIICL and UNIL researchers, the course includes tutors from academia and practicing lawyers who offer a wide range of experience and knowledge.

The two-day programme is designed to give a concrete understanding of key issues across a broad range of areas of dispute resolution including updates on current developments and case law.
