Singapore International Arbitration Academy 2019 (SIAA 2019)


22 February – 1 March 2019 | Registration Fee: S$3,000nett

The National University of Singapore’s Centre for International (CIL) will be running the Singapore International Arbitration Academy 2019 which will be taking place on 22 February 2019 (Friday) through to 1 March 2019 (Friday).

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. In past years, the Academy’s participants have included government officials from Nigeria, Canada, South Korea and throughout South-East Asia, and lawyers from top international and regional law firms. Every year, the Academy has received excellent ratings.

The 2019 Academy will bring together some of the world’s leading experts in international arbitration for a 8-day programme designed specifically for busy government officials and private practitioners. It will be yet another unparalleled opportunity for government officials, legal academics and private practitioners in the Asia Pacific region and from around the world to meet, interact with luminaries of international arbitration, and develop new professional relationships. For the upcoming Academy, participants will have the unique opportunity to be immersed in both investment law and law of the sea issues and will have the opportunity to argue in either investor-state arbitration proceedings or state-to-state law of the sea proceedings before a distinguished Tribunal (comprising five leading international law judges, practitioners and academics) on 28 February 2019.
