Earlier this year, the School of Law at University of Aberdeen announced a partnership with the Mexican Arbitration Centre (CAM) and the Institute of Legal Research (IIJ) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, two leading institutions in the development of the law in Mexico.
The Mexican Arbitration Centre is one of the pioneering arbitration institutions in Latin America. It has its own arbitration rules and has administered domestic and international arbitration cases since 1997. CAM has a series of distinguished activities such as Moot Mexico, an annual Moot on commercial arbitration based on the CAM arbitration rules and, more recently, the Seminar Series in Commercial Arbitration, in conjunction with the University of Aberdeen and IIJ.
The Institute of Legal Research of the National Autonomous University of Mexico is a Latin American leader in the research of political and social problems related to national and international legal phenomena. IIJ produces comparative inter-disciplinary research, allowing the creation and promotion of expert knowledge of utmost academic quality. IIJ has been the host of the seminars, which have been very welcomed by the legal and arbitration community in Mexico.
Following the success of the Seminar Series in Commercial Arbitration, the three institutions have created the platform Arbitration Links, a new space to expand and foster academic and legal knowledge of international arbitration in Mexico and internationally. Arbitration Links will continue with a second ‘Seminar Series in Commercial Arbitration’ and will additionally offer the series ‘Arbitration Seminars on Specialized Issues’.
The Second Seminar Series in Commercial Arbitration will be taught by leading lights in arbitration practice and will discuss issues such as the arbitration process, the arbitration award and a moot practice.
The Arbitration Seminars in Specialized Issues will also include leading arbitration practitioners in wide range of areas such as energy, investments, intellectual property and artificial intelligence.
The University of Aberdeen is committed to delivering outstanding teaching and first-class research in dispute resolution, including international arbitration. In 2022, the University of Aberdeen will launch a new on campus LLM in Dispute Resolution. Please register your interest in here.
