WCL Scholarship

One of the foundations of the growth of the culture of arbitration in Brazil is the promotion of the exchange of experiences with international institutions that have been standing out in the area, in order to bring the knowledge of what is practiced abroad. Within this strategy, the CAM-CCBC offers annually a scholarship program, the WCL Scholarship.

 

The initiative is aimed at the participation of Brazilian students in the summer programs of specialization in arbitration of the American University Washington College of Law (WCL). Stakeholders should have prior experience in arbitration and willingness to share experience in the CAM-CCBC events, thereby contributing to better dissemination in Brazil of best practices and advances in the application of arbitration mechanisms.

 

Its summer program offered by the Center on International Commercial Arbitration exposes participants to the skills needed to manage arbitration processes with the participation of international experts. The content of the curriculum is developed in order to present a complete picture of how international commercial arbitration works in practice.
