The course will develop through two modules.
The first one will be dedicated to European procedural law.

In addition to these, other Regulations will also be addressed: Regulation (EC) no. 1896/2006, establishing a European order for payment procedure; Regulation (EC) n. 805/2004, which creates a European enforcement order for uncontested credits; Regulation (EC) n. 1206/2001, on cooperation between the Courts of the Member States in the collection of evidence in civil and commercial matters.
The second one will deal with the main aspects of international arbitration. In particular, the essential notions will be provided with reference to the topics: relevance of arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism; forms of arbitration; characteristics of international commercial arbitration; legal nature of the arbitration; arbitration agreements: interpretation and applicable law; selection and appointment of arbitrators and arbitration procedure; award and recognition and enforcement procedure.

Final test will be a written test with multiple choice questions and free questions too.
