Message from Professor Pierre Mayer,
new President of the Arbitration Academy

.

Paris, 10 February 2014

.

Thanks to the remarkable skills and considerable work of the original team, led by Emmanuel Gaillard, the Arbitration Academy is now, after three years, a tremendous success.

.

I have the honour of succeeding Emmanuel Gaillard as President. The two new secretary generals are Dr Eduardo Silva Romero and Professor Jean-Baptiste Racine. The treasurer is Me Pierre Pic. The selection committee is composed of Professors Marie-Elodie Ancel, Mathias Audit and Malik Laazouzi. The format of the Academy and of is teaching remains, with this new team, unchanged.

.

In July, we will welcome the students who will be admitted to attend the courses and seminars of the 2014 session. As was achieved in each of the first three years, they will benefit from a prestigious faculty, gathering some of the best-known specialists of the law and practice of arbitration. You will find their names on the website.

.

Our ambition, as it originally was, is not only to provide to the students a top-quality education, but also to give them the opportunity to meet jurists coming from other countries, to share views and experiences with them, and to create relationships that will last well after they have parted at the end of the last course.

Pierre Mayer
