CAS IBD I Certificate of Advanced Studies in International Business Disputes
Cross-border business disputes are increasing, but attorneys, judges and legal counsel are not always well-equipped for dealing with the particular features of international cases.
Several international study programs are devoted to this topic. The advantage of the University of Lausanne’s Certificate of Advanced Studies in International Business Disputes (CAS IBD) is that the program only stretches over a short period of time and can easily be reconciled with full-time professional activity. While it is not exhaustive, it provides useful practical insights, not only on a single mechanism of dispute resolution (such as international arbitration or litigation before state courts), but also on different aspects, techniques, and fields of international dispute resolution.
All courses are taught in English and are mostly scheduled on Thursdays and Fridays dur-ing the spring term (between February and June). Some of the courses are fully or partially offered remotely, which facilitates attendance for those who are not located in Lausanne.
