Join us online and in Tripoli for this one-day conference organised by the African Chapter of ICC YAAF. We will discuss the challenges of developing and promoting arbitration and ADR in the region and the inclusion of young Lybian practitioners in the field.

Objective/Who should attend?

This conference is aimed at young lawyers and master’s students who wish to learn about the latest developments in arbitration and ADR, including the enactment of the new law and its effects on the practice of arbitration in Libya. It will also be an opportunity for young Libyan practitioners to get acquainted with the dispute resolution and prevention services offered by the ICC, and to be guided and advised for their enhancement and integration in the field of arbitration.

Open to those aged 40 and under, YAAF provides opportunities for individuals to gain knowledge, develop their skills and understand ICC’s arbitral procedure and other dispute resolution services.


What is ICC YAAF?

At ICC, we believe that through training and mentorship, we can mould the next generation of leading international arbitration and ADR experts. Through the ICC Young Arbitration and ADR Forum (YAAF) network, we are able to better inform, connect and inspire young professionals with interests in dispute resolution and dispute avoidance.

Throughout the world, ICC YAAF organises a number of educational and social events that allow young professionals to discover best practices, discuss topical issues, network and create meaningful connections with experienced practitioners.
