Whenever parties from different countries conclude a commercial contract, their contract very likely provides for international commercial arbitration to resolve any dispute arising from the contract. Increasingly, parties rely on the rules of international commercial arbitration. The ICC International Court of Arbitration, one of the major institutions administering arbitration proceedings, has seen in the last 10 years a 46% increase in the number of cases submitted every year. In 2010, cases submitted to the ICC involved parties from 139 countries, with the place of arbitration located in 63 countries. Today, if attorneys want to properly assist clients dealing with foreign business partners, they should be familiar with the rules of international commercial arbitration.

This seminar will present the basic legal framework of the rules of international commercial arbitration and highlight some of the main issues that lawyers face when dealing with this subject: how to properly draft an arbitration clause, how to choose the right arbitration institution, and how to assist clients during arbitration.

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
