Dear Colleague:

These are unprecedented and trying times.

We are all going through shock as we struggle to find stability and the 'new' normal.

The world is going through different stages of COVID-19. Some countries have gone through the worst of it and see the number of cases declining; some countries are summiting to the peak and trying to find ways to control the outbreak; while other countries are discovering this new invader on their shores. Wherever we find ourselves on this spectrum, we have to believe that together we will get through this. No matter how overwhelming it can sometimes feel, we will get through this.

In consideration of the need for social distancing and safety, and for COVID-19 to go through several cycles to get under control, ILI has decided to postpone our courses and will restart delivering training in June.

I taught an ILI on-line course last week as the United States was going through its shock of COVID-19. I realized that I needed the connectivity and interaction with the participant as much as they needed me. For the two hours a day that we got to spend on-line together discussing a subject, we felt 'normal' and productive, and the problems of the world stayed at bay.

While we cannot be with you in person for the next few months, ILI will develop a series of podcasts, webinars, and videoconferences that we will make available to you, our ILI alumni and friends. These podcasts and webinars will be made available on a complimentary basis as a service to you. While these are trying times, we think that it is important for all of us to take some time for learning and continued development; we hope the time we get to spend together will make us all feel normal, productive and growing in knowledge.

We know that borders and oceans separate us now; but we are excited for the day that we can welcome you back to the ILI.

Until then we wish you and your family peace and good health .

Yours Truly,

Chairman's Signature

Kim C. Phan
Executive Director

INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL AND INVESTOR-STATE MEDIATION


By Veniece Miller

The International Law Institute (ILI) is pleased to present a new week-long course on International Commercial and Investor-State Mediation that will take place in Washington, D.C. from April 13th – 17th, 2020. Through an in-depth analysis of theory and practice with an emphasis on building skills, participants will hone the ability and knowledge essential to managing an International Mediation process (including a multiparty mediation), and reaching an agreement in commercial cross border and investor-state investment disputes. Hernando Otero, an Alternative Dispute Resolution expert with the Washington College of Law and lecturer at the International Law Institute, is the course Advisor.

In recent times, the frameworks for International Commercial Mediation and Investor-State Mediation have developed quickly and are potentially the most effective and cost-efficient forms of dispute resolution. These frameworks are operative in the context of cross border international commerce and investor-state investment.

Hernando explains the aim of the course, “[Participants will] gain the ability to understand how to negotiate and mediate international and commercial disputes.” He notes further that this is a useful skill across various types of commercial disputes.

This course will focus on the new developing framework for International Commercial Mediation, including the enforcement of mediated settlements under the Singapore Convention on Mediation and the Investor-State Dispute Resolution framework. The second part of this course focuses on skills training to manage an international commercial or investor-state mediation either as a mediator, a party, or an advocate assisting a party to a mediation.

Hernando has structured the course to be highly interactive, including many hands-on exercises and a mock mediation. He explains this will allow participants to be able to apply what they learn and also develop skills in mediation. This hands-on experience is especially beneficial for practical application in interstate mediation. As Hernando says, “You can study all the books but not have any skills when it comes to international commerce and mediation… our focus is to develop skills― mediation is a skills-oriented activity, you need to put that knowledge into practice.”

Hernando points out that participants will add many of these skills to their toolbox, “The skills acquired are applicable to negotiations in international commercial disputes but also in the types of negotiation.”

All those who are involved in International Commercial Mediation or Investor-State Mediation, or may become involved, or are interested in these important topics will benefit from this course. Hernando says particularly this course will help “government officials to understand how to engage with private parties and mediate in the legal framework while protecting the public interest without compromising themselves.”

Upcoming Seminars:
CYBERCRIME, DATA PROTECTION AND TRANSNATIONAL COOPERATION
August 3-7

Cybersecurity is often thought to involve protecting one's identity and sensitive information when online, but this is not nearly the full extent of the risk. Critical information and infrastructure can be vulnerable to attack by malicious actors and when compromised, loss of critical data; publication of sensitive materials; damage or destruction of systems, or other severe consequences could follow.

This course investigates cybercrime in its many guises including in the context of prevention and transnational cooperation, and also focuses on the prosecution of cybercrime. Prosecution often involves bringing together multiple people across many departments and multiple jurisdictions which can pose a variety of challenges. Drawing from the U.S. policy, legislative, institutional and prosecutorial experience, this seminar will integrate the selected topics through lectures, case studies and class discussion. Participants will also engage in in-depth study of cybercrime investigation and prosecution while developing their skills.

The covered material will be of interest to policy makers, regulators, business leaders, government officials, prosecutors, criminal justice personnel, judges, attorneys, and academics, specifically in developing economies where cybercrime is emerging or may pose a particular threat.

   

Key Topics:

  • Cybercrime
  • Managing Risk, Cyber Audits, Preventing Attacks, and Mitigating Damage
  • Prosecuting Cybercrime
  • Cyberwarfare
  • International Cooperation
