The Austrian Arbitration Academy Summer Program is an intensive two-week program on international commercial arbitration. Developed for law students with an interest in dispute resolution and young practitioners, the course’s intent is to offer a first insight into arbitration. The course covers all aspects of arbitral proceedings, starting with an introduction on the prerequisites of arbitration. Further modules will focus on the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, the conduct of the proceedings, the arbitral award as well as the challenge and enforcement of said award. Students will be introduced to the legal framework of international arbitration, arbitral rules and relevant case law. The last module is entirely dedicated to investment arbitration.

The Austrian Arbitration Academy Summer Program takes place in the last two weeks of July on our campus located in the picturesque village of Strobl in the Salzkammergut region, one of Austria’s most attractive summer vacation areas.

The unique experience is enhanced by an extensive extracurricular program including sports courses (windsurfing), mountain hiking, and excursions.
