The perfect training tool and a valuable resource for experienced arbitration practitioners all over the world

ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar

The ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar is a signature training event for advanced practitioners, arbitrators, and in-house counsel that has been successfully running since its inception in 1997. The ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar follows a unique interactive format and furthers the development of cross-cultural awareness through joint leadership of each session by common law and civil law practitioners. ASA usually organizes the seminars together with another arbitration institution, including every other year with the German Arbitration Institute (DIS).
