I am extremely delighted to have attended the ninth edition of the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration at Roma Tre University. The programme provides theoretical and practical insights into international arbitration. The classes are led by eminent speakers (including academics, in-house counsels, practitioners) and are very engaging and enlightening. Coffee and lunch breaks are a great networking opportunity to share ideas among students and speakers.
I highly recommend the participation in the Certificate to anyone who is not only interested in deepening their knowledge of international arbitration, but also to those who would like to approach the matter. I will treasure everything I have learnt during the days of my attendance at the Certificate. Truly a great experience!
I found the Certificate extremely valuable in addressing in a systematic way the main topics of international arbitration, starting from a general introduction and then exploring in more details various specific, key aspects of the topic. The speakers very often contributed insightful comments and anecdotes drawn from their exceptional experience. One key element is the quality of the speakers and the possibility to interact with some of the primary players in international arbitration.
I would highly recommend it to anyone willing to expand their knowledge (and network) in this area.
I feel excited to be part of the 2022 Certificate program in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration at the Roma Tre University, Rome. It was indeed a high powered interacting and exchange of academic and practical experiences from the best international practitioners from different legal backgrounds in commercial and investment arbitration. The Facilitators were sound and engaging ON and OFF the classroom, the co-participants were friendly and promising.
The program environment was lively, offering the right network for brighter prospects. I will always recommend the program to every arbitration professional with a global outlook.
The participation in the Certificate has provided me with immeasurable academic and interpersonal growth. As an exchange student in Rome, the participation in a truly international event, which allowed me to listen and learn from the greatest experts in the field, was enriching and unique. The course schedule is extremely well curated and thought out for the best learning experience. However, the importance of the Certificate is greatly enhanced by the value given to personal connections during the event. Whether by valuing the relationships between the attendees or by providing ample post-lesson access to the lecturers, the Certificate programme succeeds in fostering an environment that encourages the active and genuine participation of all those involved. This experience will certainly remain engraved in my academic journey.
Rome was the city I sought during my academic mobility to study international arbitration, and the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration made sure my expectations were met and surpassed. International arbitration is a complex and, dare I say, endless subject, which made it all the more rewarding to attend a course that covered all the basic and fundamental topics as brilliantly as some recent developments of international arbitration.
The organizers and the lecturers were practitioners from the Italian and the international arbitral community, which alongside the attendees coming from different corners of the world ensured the networking breaks and events were a cultural exchange, and that the course itself was a truly international experience.
Throughout this five-days experience I not only learned more about international arbitration, but I also had valuable networking opportunities, reason why I would recommend the course to anyone interested, either with or without any background in arbitration.
I attended the 2022 Certificate edition. Although my studies mainly focused on International Relations and Diplomacy, I decided to attend the Certificate to deepen and widen my gaze over other types of International Dispute Resolution. My expectations were way more than fulfilled.
The speakers giving the lectures are extremely prepared. They are practitioners of the subject, so they continuously refer to personal experiences and examples, offering participants explanations of practical problems and possible solutions. The structure of the course is strict but very effective, addressing and deepening all the possible aspects of International Commercial and Investment Arbitration. Moreover, the speakers are very welcoming of any sort of question, inside and outside the class, which makes the Certificate distinctive if compared to a normal cycle of lectures.
In short, a great opportunity to exchange thoughts, questions, and knowledge with experts of the field and colleagues. I highly recommend it to law students, whether headed to an arbitration career or not.
Although I intended to travel to Rome to participate in the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration, I had to attend it online as a result of the pandemic. However, no matter I joined the online format the experience was no less than the in-class format as I could see the organizers’ sobriety and involvement from the initial contact to learn more about the course, which played a significant influence in my choice to attend. Throughout the courses, there was excellent communication and earnestness. It was an excellent experience, full of academic concepts and practical insights gained from the rich experiences of the numerous lectures that followed one after the other throughout the program, allowing me to continue learning, which has been a great opportunity as there was an occasion to learn from the best of the bests. Despite the fact that there were a lot of topics to cover in very limited time, the lecturers were able to cover the most essential arbitration concepts in a clear and concise manner, while also providing a very new perspective on them. However, given the high caliber and content of the instructors, this should not come as a surprise. I would strongly suggest the course to both seasoned practitioners and those who are interested in learning more about arbitration.
I attended the online format of the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in July 2021. Since the first contact to know more about the course, I could see its organizers’ sobriety and engagement, which has played a relevant role in my decision to participate in it. The good communication and seriousness continued throughout the classes.
The course itself has exceeded my expectations. Even though there were a lot of subjects to be addressed in only one week, the lecturers managed to cover the most important arbitration themes with clarity, while presenting a very refreshed view about them. This should not be surprising, though, considering the lecturers’ top notch quality and curriculum.
I definitely recommend the course, both for experienced practitioners and for those who want to have a first contact with arbitration practice.
The Certificate is truly excellent, amazing, exciting… The level of the speakers is very high: the theoretical lessons are interesting and thorough, while the practical ones are really engaging and useful, more than I expected: a wonderful surprise! The speakers share their experience, making students participate in their techniques, skills, tricks and ways of working: it’s just what I would like to receive… Lastly, I would like to thank all the organizing staff for their kindness, availability, and ability to involve students online as well. I would definitely recommend the Certificate, which offers the opportunity to meet professors, practitioners and referees from all over the world, to open your horizons and to have a full immersion in an international atmosphere in the arbitration landscape.
