About this course

International disputes are inevitable with international trade. The legal framework for settling international disputes is broad. Besides litigation, international arbitration is an attractive option. International mediation is also gaining momentum thanks to the Singapore Convention. In practice, however, the parties to an international contract often choose a method to settle disputes without considering possible alternatives. To provide strategically sound advice you must have up-to-date knowledge of the various options for settling international disputes.  

In this course, the lecturer will look at the various ways of settling international disputes from a practical viewpoint. He will discuss the pros and cons of each method as well as the underlying strategic considerations. The interplay between different types of procedures will also be addressed. The lecturer will also explain in detail how to draft a clause. Using practical examples, he will analyse the way in which the relevant type of clause, e.g. arbitration or choice of forum, is written. In the process, he will point out recurring errors so you can avoid them in future. 

He will also discuss current case-law, such as the London Steam-Ship Owners’ case (C-700/20) in which the Court of Justice of the European Union examined the interference between court proceedings and arbitration. This judgment has important implications for Dutch lawyers with a court case in the Netherlands where the same parties are also involved in arbitration outside the Netherlands. 

Afterwards, you will be able to assess the options for settling international disputes on a case-by-case basis and to provide strategic advice on them. You will also be able to draft valid and complete clauses.
