The course seeks to introduce participants to the role and function of arbitral institutions in the practice of international arbitration, and to the complex issues that arbitral institutions face in the administration of arbitrations, appointment of arbitrators, issuing arbitral rules and practice notes and in guiding and shaping the development of international arbitration.
