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 8th cycle.

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.


The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme would not be possible without the support and investment of its Mentors. Young ICCA wishes to extend its gratitude to the many prominent practitioners who have and continue to provide young practitioners with invaluable guidance throughout the 7th and 8th cycles of the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme.
