We are offering the International Arbitration Award Writing module in order to provide the requisite knowledge of and practice in all the requirements of writing a final, reasoned and enforceable Award in an international commercial dispute. There are two opportunities to take the International Arbitration Award Writing Exam: July or August.
The module gives you an excellent opportunity to revise questions relating to arbitration awards, their legal regulation and their effect. You will receive a reading list as well as a set of reading materials focusing on arbitration awards, their characteristics, functions and drafting.
You will be required to start working on the awards by drafting summary of facts, summary of parties' positions, claims, etc. Two weeks after the first materials are released, we will send out a second set of materials (typically the information relating to the hearing) and you will have twenty-four (24) hours to complete your award. Awards should be no less than 5,000 words and presented in a format that it is suitable for international arbitration award. All course materials can be accessed via QMPlus (Virtual Learning Environment).
Students can attend a one-day seminar (optional) which will cover the following areas:
