Become a Dispute Professional

Mediation and Negotiation are becoming the processes of choice for international parties to manage and resolve disputes. Mediation and Negotiation skills will, therefore, be two core competencies for establishing a legal career.

To become successful practitioners, the lawyers of the future, however, must also become true dispute professionals. Dispute professionals, who can not only help resolve disputes consensually, but who are trained in advising their clients on how to best approach and manage a given dispute. Professionals who can guide them through optimal steps of the full process right from choosing the best way to handle complex differences to reaching a win-win solution.

The International Dispute Professional Academy (IDPA) is an intense 40 hours training, held from 11-16 July at the University of Vienna, Austria.
