After the huge success of the 2013 course, the Office of International Graduate Law Programs will host a one week intensive non-credit course for lawyers and law students in 2014.

The course is intended for students and attorneys who are generally interested in international business transactions and want an overview of the most frequent methods for resolving contractual disputes. The course will be taught by world-renowned University of Miami School of Law faculty.

Some of the topics covered in the course will include: the essential distinction between domestic and international arbitration; the interface between judges and arbitrators; judicial deference to valid arbitration agreements, and what to do with claims of invalidity; the movement toward convergence in matters of procedure; and the enforcement of awards.

Please note that space is limited in this specialized course.
