I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in 2020.  The Certificate’s comprehensive structure is a good way for students and practitioners at various seniority levels to expand their knowledge of procedural and substantive issues that arise in international commercial and investment arbitration.  In addition to providing the participants with a theoretical foundation, the Certificate offers helpful practical insights from its experienced faculty.  Further, the diversity of legal thought and practice among the faculty and participants — from both common law and civil law backgrounds — made the program a unique and enriching experience.  I would recommend the Certificate to students and practitioners looking for an opportunity to expand or reinforce their understanding of international arbitration and forge meaningful relationships along the way.

My personal approach of ADR has always – depending on what appears to be asked for by case and setting, and agreed upon by parties – varied from a purely facilitative, to a more evaluative, or even determinative one.

The outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis – during which I became increasingly active as a conciliator in conflicts between companies getting difficulties to fulfil their current contracts – made me realize that hybrid approaches in general, aimed at fast, workable solutions, may be the answer to the challenges facing our justice systems; with arbitration itself having a more prominent role to play.

Attending the excellently organised Certificate’s 7th Edition at University of Roma Tre’s School of Law, delivered by a top-notch, global faculty, provided me with a dense, thorough, theoretical and practical backbone, as well as extensive course material as to the realm of International Commercial and Investment Arbitration, enhancing as such my own future-proofness.

With networking events and opportunities being limited due to the pandemic’s restrictions, the exchanges – also with those within the cohort attending on-line – still remained valuable; in brief: a must for all those active in the field.

I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in September 2020. Despite being specialized in international arbitration, I am always eager to deepen my knowledge in this topic so I enrolled in this course. The Certificate allowed me to learn new things and to deepen the knowledge of aspects I had already studied, both from theoretical and practical points of view.

The Certificate is very well structured: over five days, participants attended fascinating lectures given by world-class international practitioners who shared their unique knowledge, insights and practical experience over international arbitration.

Despite the pandemic, the organisation of the event was flawless and I can only thank the organisers and the tutors for making of this possible. I strongly recommend this course to all of you who wish to broaden their knowledge of international arbitration.

The Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration is essential for any dispute resolution practitioner who must consider international public and private law. The course is well organised and delivered by experienced academics, professionals and other presenters who have a genuine interest in the topic and promotion of arbitration as a premium and determinative dispute resolution process. The course is delivered over 5 consecutive days by working through the core and critical elements of drafting arbitration clauses, initiating the arbitration process, having the dispute heard and an arbitral award written. The course material also deals with other aspects such as bilateral and multi-lateral trade treaties, award enforcement and the UN Convention. The course material is extensive and provides all participants with practical examples of arbitration and guidance for arbitrators and disputing parties. The networking events and opportunities are excellent and the University of Roma Tre is a great venue for the course. I would definitely attend the course again and encourage anyone who is a lawyer, dispute resolution practitioner or a contracting party that is exposed to disputes to attend the course.

I subscribed to the Certificate shortly after graduating in July 2019, just a few weeks into my legal traineeship in a boutique law firm focused on international arbitration. I wanted to join a program which would provide me a solid academic basis as well as a practical insight, in order to start off with the right foot. The Certificate served this purpose excellently. Even though I did not have a specific background on international commercial arbitration, I managed to follow all classes and learn both the basics and some of the insiders’ tricks.
What I perhaps treasured the most, however, was the possibility to engage with the speakers not only during their sessions, but also in more informal occasions, such as during lunchtime or coffee breaks. That offered me the inestimable chance to have one-to-one conversations with both Italian and international leading professionals in the field, and made the Certificate a program which I would recommend even to more experienced practitioners.

I attended the Arbitration Certificate in Commercial and Investment Arbitration in 2019 and I am delighted to share my experience. I was very pleased to find out that such a high-level program in international arbitration was held in Rome and moreover at University of Roma Tre, were I graduated one year ago.
The Certificate was very well structured. It was a five days experience where we attended excellent lectures which covered all the main aspects of the international arbitration: starting from the principles to the recognition and enforcement of the award, passing by the drafting of an arbitration clause, the appointing of the arbitral tribunal and the proceedings.
The lecturers were academics, international law firm practitioners, in house counsels and professionals of the main international organizations and this made the program both theoretical and practical.
Last but not least, I was delighted to meet so many people interested in arbitration from all the continent of the world and to share with them this experience.
I would strongly recommend the Certificate to both students and legal practitioners who wants to study or improve their knowledge in this field.

I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in September 2019. It was an excellent experience. Over the course of five days, participants attended fascinating lectures given by world-class international practitioners who shared their unique knowledge, insights and practical experience over international arbitration. I particularly appreciated the fact that the Certificate was structured in such a way that all main aspects of international commercial and investment arbitration were touched upon. The organisation of the event was flawless and I can only thank the organisers and the tutors for making of this possible. I warmly recommend the Certificate to all practitioners interested in receiving an intensive (and comprehensive) course in international arbitration and connecting with other arbitration practitioners from all over the world.

Chiara Arena

The passion for international arbitration and for multicultural environments was born in me during my Erasmus experience in Germany and while I was taking part to the Willem C. Vis Moot during 2018. Nonetheless, I had the impression that my knowledge on the subject, acquired during these experiences, was only partial and not enough to guarantee me a complete understanding of international arbitration. Driven by the desire for knowledge and encouraged by the high quality of the faculty, I enrolled in the certificate and now I do can say I am extremely satisfied. I had the opportunity to learn new things and to deepen the knowledge of aspects I had already studied, both from theoretical and practical points of view, having furthermore the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, from Australia to America, passing through Sweden. Among the participants it has been created a great convivial and networking atmosphere that I will carry with me for a lifetime. Renowned professionals, final lecture at the Unidroit, Rome as landscape, the discussed topics and the exceptional organization carried out by the Certificate’s Tutors have made this experience unforgettable and I really recommend it to every professional who intends to appear in the world of ADR internationally.

Paolo Comoglio

I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in 2018. How to describe my experience? Few words are needed: outstanding and amazing. First of all, the Certificate is very well structured: it’s a one week crash course in which leading academics and practitioners, from all over the world, share their experience and their tricks in the field of international arbitration. Secondly, it is a great opportunity to interact with the other partecipants, lawyers and academics from several countries, in a friendly way. Last, but not least, the staff: they make you feel like at home. Reading the programme of the Certificate one could be doubtful: so many interesting topics, so many outstanding practicioners… over all in Rome… How is it possible? In fact, I was; but, I did not have to be: the Certificate is exactly like it seems.

Gabriele Piccinini

I attended the Certificate in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration in September 2018. It was a marvelous experience and it really exceeded my expectations in every respect. First of all, we had the chance to receive world class lectures from domestic and international practitioners and in-house counsels, on various important aspects of international arbitration, academically and practically. Moreover, the perfect organization during the five days of the course also allowed the participants quality time for networking and socializing and it was a great and pleasant opportunity to meet professionals with very different backgrounds from all over the world in the beautiful context of Rome.
In short, an absolutely remarkable enrichment: professional, relational and human.
I recommend it without any doubt.
