The aims of the seminar are to:

  • Further build upon the general context of institutional arbitration laid out in previous seminars in this series,
  • Deepen knowledge of the workings of a leading international arbitral institution often used by Irish parties or parties retaining Irish counsel, and
  • Allow attendees to use any lessons learned in the session in the future provision of services for clients involved in LCIA arbitrations.
