Kursbeskrivning

The field of investment treaty arbitration has grown exponentially, and Sweden has cemented its positioning as one of the leading venues for investment disputes.  The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce is designated in numerous international treaties as the forum for arbitrating investment disputes. Further, Nordic law firms are equipped to compete with international law firms for investment business.

The purpose of the course is to disseminate knowledge about investment treaty arbitration to Nordic Law Firms in order to make them engaged in the – and equipped for – competing for investment disputes. The goal of the learning objectives is to train lawyers and future lawyers and policy experts with special knowledge in investment law and arbitration so that they can work within different organizations, including law firms, governments, banks, large companies, and NGOs.

This course fills a gap as there is no other professional course providing teaching on this increasingly important subject. Nordic law firms have great potential in competing with international law firms for investment treaty arbitration matters. This course seeks to equip law firms, governmental officials, NGOs, any other practitioners, and academics with the necessary skills and interest to embark on an investment treaty arbitration journey on their own.

The course will deal with the following:
  • Treaty Interpretation
  • Investment Protection
  • Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
  • Challenges before the Svea Court of Appeal
  • Enforcement and Sovereign Immunity
After the course you will:
  •  Understand what investment treaty arbitration is and how it operates;
  • Be able to understand and use in practice treaty protection in investment treaties or foreign investment law;
  • Understand and orient oneself in some of the procedural intricacies of investment treaty arbitration; and
  • Understand some of the contemporary debate on the future of investment treaty arbitration.

Målgrupp

This course is aimed at lawyers in law firms, governmental officials, researchers and other practitioners working for NGOs or IOs, journalists, and academics.
