  • The purpose of the WIPO Arbitration Workshop is to provide intensive basic training of a practical nature for party representatives in arbitration and for arbitrators. The training will focus on the main principles of international commercial arbitration law and practice, with particular reference to the practical application of the 2014 WIPO Arbitration and WIPO Expedited Arbitration Rules (as well as the WIPO Expert Determination Rules) in intellectual property and technology disputes. The format of the Workshop will consist of presentations by the instructors and discussion between participants and instructors. After completion of the Workshop, participants will have a better understanding of the substantive components of international commercial arbitration, as well as the benefits and limitations of arbitration in intellectual property disputes as compared to other dispute resolution options, in particular court litigation. In addition, they will obtain practical information about the role of the WIPO Center in arbitration proceedings, and its arbitration clauses and rules.
