We were happy to see an enthusiastic response to YAG’s training workshop on the fundamental principles and practice of arbitration organized in collaboration with Ziauddin University. There were a total of 55 attendees, 45 of them attending in person and 10 online. Attendees had the opportunity to learn from and engage with the trainers who shared their practical insights and experiences in the field of arbitration.

Since this was YAG’s first training workshop in Karachi, we look forward to organizing more such workshops to build the capacity of law students and young lawyers and quipe them with practical skills to practice both domestic and international arbitration.

We would like to thank Ziauddin University Law School for hosting us and making excellent arrangements to ensure the workshop was a success! We would also like to thank Young ICCA and the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) as supporting organizations of this workshop.
