ILI-ACLE conducted a two-week seminar on International Commercial Arbitration for the 10 judges and the Registrar of the East African Court of Justice (EACJ). The seminar familiarized the Court with alternative methods of dispute resolution and the international arbitration process. A major part of the course was dedicated to a simulated arbitration exercise, which was based on a real-life problem and arbitration. The judges actively engaged in key aspects of an international arbitration – from drafting the arbitration clause to asserting claims and defenses, making challenges to arbitrators, engaging in discovery and hearing, and briefing and final award.
