Program Description:
Description
This course is focused on the study of legal aspects of international investment dispute settlement. As the number of multimillion-dollar investment arbitration cases filed by investors against host states is increasing, the comprehension of this field of law has become essential. Classes are aimed at providing students with the knowledge and critical understanding of key issues surrounding international investment dispute settlement. The course is focused primarily on international investment arbitration and covers topics ranging from the drafting of an arbitral agreement to the holding of arbitral proceedings and enforcement of awards. Special attention is paid to the analysis of leading arbitration cases under the rules of the UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). At the same time, attention is also dedicated to alternatives to investment arbitration, including but not limited to international investment mediation. 

As the course is interactive and practice-oriented, there are a number of practical assignments, such as international investment arbitration simulations. Course activities allow students not only to apply the substantive knowledge gained in practice, but also help improve their proficiency in verbal and written communication as well as their analytical and problem-solving skills.
