Singapore International Arbitration Academy 2021

21 – 24 June 2021

About the Academy

Spearheaded by the then Attorney-General and now Chief Justice of Singapore, Sundaresh Menon, the Academy runs annually in Singapore. It is founded upon CIL’s mandate to establish programmes for capacity-building in key areas of international law and practice in the Asia-Pacific region. The programme of the Academy aims to be responsive to the needs of both government and private-sector lawyers and legal academics in the practice of international arbitration.

The 2021 Singapore International Arbitration Academy brings together some of the world’s leading experts in international arbitration for a programme designed specifically for busy government officials and private practitioners. Past participants have included government officials from Nigeria, Canada, South Korea and throughout South-East Asia, and lawyers from top international and regional law firms. Past editions of the Academy have received excellent ratings.

The 2021 Academy will be an unparalleled opportunity for government officials, legal academics and private practitioners in the Asia Pacific region and from around the world to meet and interact with luminaries of international dispute settlement, and develop new professional relationships. This will help government officials to develop a deeper understanding of international arbitration and to learn what demands are placed on the government when it becomes a party to an investor-state treaty arbitration.

In summary, this will provide invaluable hands-on skills-training to government officials who have to deal with investor-state treaty claims.

More information on the programme and registration fee will be provided soon.
