The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is launching an advanced training course on international contracts, to be held in Paris on 7-10 October 2013. Led by a panel of experts, the interactive programme will cover negotiating and drafting key clauses, dispute resolution, and cultural and legal approaches.
Working in groups of approximately 10, participants will tackle a mock case involving a multi-party contract and will negotiate and re-draft specific clauses of the contract. To ensure interactivity, the total number of participants is limited to 40.
The first two days will focus on negotiating and re-drafting, and applying legal theory to the mock case, while the third day will cover methods of dispute resolution, financing and managing cross-border contracts.
On the fourth day, a three-hour brainstorming session will give participants a chance to raise issues they face with international contracts and share advice and experience.
Sessions will be held in English and French with simultaneous translation.
The training is aimed at legal directors and corporate counsel from companies involved in international trade, practising lawyers, legal practitioners advising international trading companies and business people involved in international trade and dispute resolution.
Participants will earn 24 CLE credits, 20.5 CPD hours. The training qualifies as “formation continue” in France.
