Mentoring Programme

The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme is the first structured mentoring programme established within the international arbitration community. The programme was pioneered by ICCA and Young ICCA in 2011, and is now entering its 10th cycle.

Taking Part

The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme provides a unique platform for young professionals to connect with and learn from the experience of more senior members of the arbitration community, including members of ICCA’s Governing Board.


Members of Young ICCA may apply to participate in the Mentoring Programme at the start of each new cycle. Applications for the 10th cycle of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme are now closed. Applications for the 11th cycle will open in July 2023.

Meet the Mentors

The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme would not be possible without the support and investment of its Mentors.
