9th Cycle of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme Commences
The 9th cycle of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme is officially underway. We would like to thank all those who applied and congratulate the successful applicants on their selection.
92 young practitioners of 54 different nationalities will take part as Mentees in the Programme, which this cycle consists of 23 mentoring groups. Each mentoring group will be led by a Mentor and a Group Advisor.
More than 400 people applied to take part in this cycle. Programme Co-directors Krystle Baptista Serna, Emily Hay and Peter Riznik took the following factors into consideration when making the selection of Mentees: gender and regional diversity among participants, the under-representation of certain jurisdictions in international arbitration, the applicants’ demonstrable interest and desire to develop professionally within the field of international arbitration, prior educational and professional exposure and the need for a mix of experience and seniority in each group.
This cycle of the Mentoring Programme will run until December 2023. We welcome all participants to the Programme and look forward to the next 2 years of collaboration.
The selection for the next cycle will commence in July. For more information on the application process, please visit the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme page.
