Schedule

Our Summer Law School schedule is designed around three things: A challenging and inspiring academic programme, a fun and exciting social programme and many opportunities for contact with arbitration experts.

Most workshops will take place in the facilities of the Graduate Institute of Geneva, located in the Parc Barton right on the shore of the Lake Geneva. It’s a beautiful and relaxing setting in late summer.

Our law school is meant to give a first insight on arbitration, aiming to form people who never did study this field before. In order to do so, we built up an academic program covering most of the aspects of arbitration, with a focus on the practice of this field. That is why most of our speakers are lawyers with a professional focus in this area.

Note: The schedule might change slightly in the future. Any change will be announced on this website and on our Facebook page. Any missing social programme information will be announced as it is planned.
