The Association of Young Arbitrators (AYA) has launched the Africa Arbitration Academy. The Academy was established due to the rising demand for improved expertise and training of arbitration practitioners in Africa and to expose young practitioners in Africa to the current trends and developments in international commercial and investment arbitration. The inaugural Academy program would be held in London (June 2019) and taught by international arbitration experts (academics and practitioners), heads of arbitration institutions, in-house counsel, and judges.
The Academy has received massive collaboration and support from international law firms and institutions including ICSID (World Bank), SOAS (London), Africa Arbitration, White & Case, Clifford Chance, Linklaters, WilmerHale, Stephenson Harwood, Allen & Overy, Baker & Mckenzie, Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells, Freshfields, Sherman & Sterling, Debevoise & Plimpton, Quinn Emanuel, CMS Cameron, and Mayer Brown, amongst others.
