6th cycle of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme officially underway
Young ICCA is pleased to announce that the 6th cycle of its flagship Mentoring Progamme is officially underway. We take this opportunity to congratulate the successful applicants and to welcome them to the Programme.
After a rigorous selection process, Programme Coordinators Gloria Alvarez and Eric Chang identified 64 successful applicants. 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.
This cycle of the Mentoring Programme will run until December 2020. The selection process for the next cycle will commence in August 2019. For more information on the application process, please visit the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme page.
