5th cycle of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme now underway
Young ICCA is pleased to announce that the fifth cycle of its flagship Mentoring Progamme is officially underway. After a rigorous selection process, Programme Coordinators Maria Athanasiou and David Kim identified 96 successful applicants. We take this opportunity to congratulate the successful applicants and to welcome them to the programme.
Over 300 applications were received and reviewed for the 2018-2019 cycle of the Mentoring Programme. As the Programme is geared towards promoting the use of arbitration by exposing new practitioners from all corners of the globe to international practice, the following factors were taken into consideration when making the selection: gender and regional diversity among participants, the fact that some jurisdictions are under-represented in international arbitration, the applicants’ demonstration of a true interest and desire to enter the field of international arbitration through prior educational and professional exposure, availability of fewer opportunities to certain applicants and the need for a mix of experience and seniority in each group.
Of the 96 successful applicants, 54 are women and 42 are men. We are also pleased to note that 59 nationalities are represented in this cycle’s group of mentees. The full list of Mentees, Buddies and Mentors is available here.
This cycle of the Mentoring Programme will run until December 2019. The selection process for the next cycle will commence in August 2018. For more information on the application process, please click here.
