Some events of interest

I wish to highlight two events organised by the International Chamber of Commerce which may be of interest to the readers.

1. Webinar on Revision of ICC Arbitration Rules.
The details of this event have been posted on the Indian Corporate Law Blog. The interactive webinar will be held on June 23, 2010 at 4:00pm (GMT+2). The speakers will include  Mr. Jason Fry, the Secretary General of ICC and Ms. Francesca Mazza, Counsel and Secretary to the ICC Commission on Arbitration. For registration and further details please visit the official site of the event.
2. Sixth International Commercial Mediation Competition.
I have received an email from the organizers of this event. The following is the text of the email:

The International Chamber of Commerce (“ICC”) invites your university to participate in the6th ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition which will take place from 4 - 9 February 2011 in Paris.

In light of the growing importance of mediation for the settlement of international commercial disputes, ICC organizes the Competition to give students the opportunity to learn aboutmediation from some of the world’s best mediators and to practise their problem-solving and advocacy skills.

The Competition is the only international mediation moot and is attended by university teams from over thirty countries worldwide.

The Competition is an excellent event for universities seeking to provide their students with the opportunity to test their problem-solving skills in an international mediation moot. During the Competition, students take on the roles of counsel or client in mediation sessions dealing with international commercial disputes. Experienced and renowned mediators from all around the world act as mediators and judges in the mock mediation sessions, conducted under the ICCADR Rules.

During the various social events and trainings, students, mediators, lawyers and academics can meet and share their experiences and mediation knowledge - across borders and cultural divides.

All written and oral communication during the Competition is in English.

To send a team, your university must select between two to four students, of which at least one shall be a law student to take on the role of counsel. Each team may be accompanied by a Coach, who may be a university professor, lawyer, mediator or any other person approved by the university. A registration fee of € 500 per university is required to cover a team’s participation costs at the Competition, and each team is responsible for its own expenses.
The online application for university teams opens on 15 June 2010 and closes on 15 October 2010.
To account for different school schedules around the world, the first 25 places will be attributed by the Organizing Committee between 15 and 20 July 2010. The remaining 25 places will remain open until the closing of the application process and will be attributed by the Organizing Committee between 16 – 20 October 2010.
Accordingly, Organizing Committee will confirm the first set of 25 accepted universities by 20 July 2010. The second set of 25 universities accepted will receive confirmation of their acceptance from the Organizing Committee by 20 October 2010.
