Austrian Arbitration Academy - Summer Program

University of Vienna

The Austrian Arbitration Academy is organized by the Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna which has been hosting an international summer program with a strong focus on European and International Law since 1949. Every summer participants from all over the world attend seminars and spend time together as a part of an international community on a campus on the shore of Lake Wolfgang.

The Austrian Arbitration Academy is an intensive two-week program on international commercial arbitration for both regular students of the univie: summer school and participants who take part only in this special arbitration program.

It addresses the following groups of participants:

  • Students and law school graduates interested in the world of international dispute resolution.
  • Young practitioners looking for a comprehensive course giving them first-hand insights into international arbitration.

The Austrian Arbitration Academy program takes place from July 16 to July 30, 2022 and consists of 64 contact hours. (Each contact hour consists of 45 minutes classroom teaching.)

After an introductory session on the first Sunday, classes will be held Monday to Friday mornings. In additional afternoon workshops the participants will discuss salient issues of international arbitration with special guests from the international arbitration community.

On July 29 a written exam will take place. On the evening before the exam, a special Q&A session will help the participants to prepare for the exam.

Successful participants will receive the University of Vienna – Austrian Arbitration Academy diploma.
