The CAS in Arbitration offered by the Swiss Arbitration Academy is a great course taught by brilliant and highly motivated professionals. The participants have a unique opportunity to practice their pleading and cross-examination skills and to meet practitioners with different backgrounds. For me, it was a very valuable and fun experience.
