Doctoral and postdoctoral students may submit applications for the CAM-CCBC Research Scholarship Program in partnership with Max-Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (MPIL) until May 25. The selected professional will be granted a one-month research stay at the headquarters of the institution, in Hamburg (Germany) in the second half of this year or the first half of 2021.

This is the fifth scholarship granted by CAM for the German institute. The program is part of the efforts of CAM’s current management to promote and develop the study of arbitration in Brazil and worldwide, expanding and diversifying opportunities for Brazilian professionals at the best global study centers. It is also an incentive to the exchange of experiences and knowledge.

“CAM-CCBC’s initiatives in the field of partnerships with international institutions are exceptional. They show the level of excellence that the CAM reached in the Brazilian arbitration and itsfocus in not only providing high quality management services, but ensuring the development of the academic studies related to the subject, which, eventually, helps developing Brazilian arbitration as a whole,” says arbitrator and attorney Ana Carolina Beneti, founding partner of Beneti Advocacia and member of CAM’s Scientific Committee for the Max-Planck Institute research Scholarship Program.

The arbitrator, who has attended the German school for researching, highlights some of the various advantages of the research program. “Max Planck Institute is one the world’s leading legal research institutions in comparative law’s fields of both European and international private civil, commercial, economic and civil procedural law. The selected professional will have access to a vast collection, contact with researchers from all over the world and professors of the school, which will certainly contribute to the development of an international view of arbitration, adding to the research a thorough and distinguished academic knowledge resulting from the access to information not available in Brazil in such a concentrated way. The school’s library alone holds over 550 thousand printed books and 1.6 thousand digital foreign magazines.

Those interested in participating in the program must complete the application form available on CAM’s website and meet the requirements detailed therein. The selection test will be conducted in one stage by the Scientific Committee of the Program and consists in the analysis of documentation, résumé, titles and research project, in addition to an interview. The result will be published until June 24.
