I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in 2018 and I am delighted to share my personal experience. For me it was not only a unique opportunity to gain further knowledge in the field of International Arbitration but also to spend a wonderful week in the terrific city of Rome. The course curriculum was excellent and the panels were composed of true experts in the relevant areas, who had also exceptional teaching skills. In the mornings, we mostly had theoretical lessons that were always well prepared. These lessons gave us the knowledge we needed for the debates in the afternoon. Especially as a young practitioner this combination of theoretical and practical learning methods was the best part, because it gave us a good picture of what the daily work in the field of International Arbitration might look like. Moreover, the faculty organized various visits to local Arbitration law firms as well as events at the most amazing locations in Rome. The other participants were basically from all over the world and the group consisted of a well-balanced mixture of law school graduates and legal practitioners. To summarize, the program was simply amazing as there were great academic courses coupled with fantastic management and social networking. I can highly recommend the Certificate to anyone who is interested in learning more about International Arbitration, whether you are a beginner or a professional.

I participated in the 2018 edition of the “Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration”, and have to acknowledge the well-framed contents of the course, able to meet the taste of international practitioners. A heart-felt thanks goes to the organizers. Arbitrators need not have law degree to arbitrate disputes, but this course. This is because the course offers technical preparation and provides the skills to handle any type of arbitration. I encourage all law and non-law degree holders to participate and reap the fruits of the work done by Roma Tre University and the panelists involved in the course.

Going to Rome, gaining a deep insight into arbitration, learning from leading individuals of the field of arbitration and enjoying a great exchange of ideas with participants from all over the world. To you this sounds to be possible only in a dream? Think again! The outstandingly well-organized Certificate’s program follows a thought-out structure: understand the basics, then go into detail and connect the dots. Leading academics and practitioners of the Italian and worldwide arbitration scene provide not only the foundations for the understanding of the functioning of arbitration. Moreover, without exceptions, they give a deep insight into their daily work, experience and track record. This valuable inside view of the world of arbitration combined with exclusive side events and fellow participants from all over the world with multifaceted professional backgrounds make this experience a one of a kind.

With the aim of further advancing my professional knowledge in the field of arbitration, with a specific focus on investment arbitration, I attended the 2018th edition of the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration. What I found most rewarding about this experience is the in-depth knowledge gained on key material and procedural matters to be taken into account during an arbitral proceeding, so as to ensure an enforceable award. The vastly qualified, experienced and welcoming panelists created an advanced learning environment, which has undoubtedly aided me in my professional path. A single week’s worth of sessions is easily comparable to a whole semester of an LL.M. degree. The staff of Roma Tre is also surprisingly friendly and humble. Thus, I would highly recommend this Certification program, primarily for its substantial teachings, but also for the wonderful networking opportunity it offers with fellow arbitration practitioners, students and future colleagues around the world.

I am delighted to share my experience from the 2018 International Arbitration Certificate program. The content of the program was comprehensive and up to date. The management team, guest speakers and commentators were wonderful knowledgeable and had enormous theoretical and practical experiences. The participants were equally friendly and wonderful. We shared experiences from various countries and had the opportunity to socialize and interact with one another. Arbitration in my own country -Nigeria – is very much influenced by the common law perspective. The British Chartered Institute of Arbitrators has a strong presence and relationship with Nigeria. It was very interesting for me to see arbitration from the Italian and other civil law jurisdiction perspectives. The Certificate’s program was simple, comprehensive and up to date with new introductions to UNIDROIT Principles on International Arbitration. The Certificate’s program offered a good critique on international arbitration from developed and developing countries perspectives. I look forward to improving cooperation between Roma Tre University and arbitration organizations in Africa.

I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in 2017.
Back from a studying and working experience in Paris, I was looking for a theoretical and
practical program in international arbitration in my hometown, Rome.
I found the Certificate well structured and rich: academics, international law firm practitioners and in house professionals imparting and sharing their knowledge in a very clear and dynamic way. All the speakers were really well prepared in arbitration: they convinced me! The other participants and I built a team really quickly thanks to the different activities, and today we are still in touch. What’s more the environment and the social moments were really pleasant and detailed. In Rome, this program is The arbitration
Certificate.
