Membership In Arbitral Organizations

Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS): The Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS) was founded in order to promote the use of international arbitration and mediation and the selection of Miami as the situs for international arbitration proceedings related to the resolution of transborder commercial and investment disputes. The Society works to maintain and enhance the extensive infrastructure developed to encourage international arbitration in Miami by supporting appropriate legislation, relevant academic programs at area universities, local international arbitration conferences, featuring distinguished practitioners as guest speakers, and providing training and legal updates to its members on the latest developments in international arbitration. The Society also provides a forum where practitioners and others interested in international arbitration can network and exchange ideas and information about this growing practice area.

Meetings are held once every two months and feature leading arbitration practitioners as speakers. Student membership: $25.00

Future of Arbitration: Miami: FA:M is South Florida's first young professionals organization dedicated to promoting international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution. FA:M organizes various programs, receptions and other social events to help bring young professionals together to network and exchange ideas about international arbitration and dispute resolution.

Young ICCA: Young ICCA is a world-wide arbitration knowledge and skills network for young practitioners, established in 2010. It aims to:

  • provide a forum for young students and professionals to exchange ideas about international arbitration;
  • provide young professionals interested in dispute resolution with access to each other and to the international arbitration community;
  • promote the use of arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution by introducing new practitioners from all corners of the globe into the practice of arbitration.

Participation in Young ICCA is open to law students, faculty members and young practitioners. In addition to the information listed on its website, members can connect with each other through its Facebook and our Linked-In pages.

Young ICCA functions under the auspices of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA).
