Dear Colleague,

We know that the best training experience is in-person. We understand we must be apart during these challenging times. We are committed to maintaining ILI's training excellence during this difficult time and have moved many of our training programs - including new, highly-relevant courses - online during the months of July and August.

Online training programs are live and interactive, much like our well-known, in-person offerings. Understanding that the ILI Advantage is best experienced in-person but learning needs to take place now, we are offering the following: if you attend an ILI online course during 2020, you will receive a scholarship to attend a future, in-person training course of equal value between now and December 2023.

Remote learning, if you are unable to attend an in-person training program in Washington, DC, the ILI is prepared to make arrangements for your remote, real-time participation in our training seminars. ILI is committed to providing each participant with the very best training experiences, we stand ready to assist you in developing a plan to attend our training programs without having to travel.

ILI has updated many of our fundamental courses to deal with crisis. For example, International Public Procurement will have more emphasis on emergency procurement, and Contract Administration will cover more on Force Majeure. In addition, we have created the ILI COVID-19 Webinar Series, this is a series of free webinars lead by ILI experts to address specialized angles on how to deal with the COVID crisis. This can be found at ILI COVID-19 Webinars.

INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT TREATIES AND INVESTOR-STATE ARBITRATION
November 30 - December 11 - On-Line

The use of investment treaties – including bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and free trade agreements (FTAs) - has exploded in recent years. Almost 3000 such treaties are in effect. Foreign investors have used BITs to initiate hundreds of international arbitration disputes against host governments with amounts ranging from a few million to several billion dollars in connection with foreign investments. This seminar teaches participants about international investment treaties and also how to prevent and resolve disputes arising from them. Additionally, it includes advanced instruction in how and when international arbitration proceedings are initiated against nations that violate international treaties.
