International Investment Arbitration is a process where an investor, a foreign investor, goes into arbitration with a state. The take-away of this course is first of all that you understand how a state has to behave when they are hosting foreign direct investment, and what really happens if a dispute arises. Brexit has changed the rules of the game. The United Kingdom suddenly faces a need of understanding rules of trade, rules of foreign investment, how to go to arbitration independently, perhaps without the help of some European authorities. International Arbitration really looks into the procedural issues once you have decided as a foreign investor to sue a country that is hosting your investment. The course covers initially the differences between commercial arbitration and investment arbitration so that the student is placed in the middle of international law and commercial arbitration, so that you come to really understand the unique features of the arbitration process within investment arbitration. We look into to the source of consent of investor-state dispute to the point that everybody feels very confident. So we’ll look into international investment agreements and then we’ll look into the differences between contractor claims and investment claims and that is when we enter into the process itself. And we look into issues of provisional measures, the intervention of non-disputing parties, such as amicus curiae, and issues of enforcement either under an exit process or outside exit rules. The class is designed to grow organically, so we make sure that the knowledge of all of the class is similar at the beginning of the process, and then we build up on this learning process. Our Dispute Resolution online courses in general, not only International Investment Arbitration, are designed to ensure that we follow up with each student on a weekly basis and our tutorials and discussion boards are the tools we use to be in contact with the student and to make sure they are understanding and grasping the theoretical and the practical information of the course itself. How we benefit as professionals from this course is, first of all, if you work in a private practice then you are able to advise your client, either if it’s a company or a state, or if you are a government official then you are able to represent your own government and you understand the kind of peculiarities of investor-state arbitration. But also if you work in think tanks or you are an in-house lawyer, or even if you’re an academic, there are really a lot of benefits, real-life benefits and practical benefits to taking this course.
