International arbitration differs in key ways from domestic United States arbitration and from litigation in local courts, from the vocabulary used to the presentation of evidence to the form of an arbitral award. This day-long training program for lawyers and arbitrators will address the legal and the cultural differences from domestic U.S. practice. Attendees will learn not only the substantive legal rules, but also the practical “know how” needed to approach international arbitration with confidence.

… are a litigator and want to represent clients in international arbitration
