March 9 @ 10:30 am – 2:30 pm
An Introduction to International Arbitration and the Role of Behavioural Psychology in Persuasive Advocacy.
This seminar offers an exceptional opportunity to gain insights and tools essential to succeed as a practitioner in international arbitration.
With arbitration’s heavy reliance on written and oral advocacy, expertise in persuasive communication is vital. Yet core concepts of psychology and persuasion remain overlooked both in traditional legal education and practice. This 4-hour seminar seeks to change that through interactive presentations and discussions with leading specialists in arbitration and scientific persuasion.
Students will benefit from:
- A comprehensive introduction to terminology, processes, and best practices in international arbitration
- An overview of cognitive biases and psychological principles shown to enhance argument persuasiveness
- Real case examples demonstrating how behavioural research strengthens arbitration preparation and presentation
- Direct access to top arbitration and psychology experts, with an opportunity for Q&A
- An insider’s view into how knowledge from behavioural science equips practitioners with a winning edge
Gaining even basic fluency with principles of psychology and persuasion will equip students with an advantage in arbitration practice. The event will provide attendees with insights to position them for future success in advocacy for clients.
