DELOS SUPPORTS ARBITRATION PRACTITIONERS AND IN-HOUSE COUNSEL WITH EFFECTIVE ACCESS TO KEY INSIGHTS

REMOTE ORAL ADVOCACY PROGRAMME (ROAP)

Welcome to Delos's advanced oral advocacy training in international arbitration. This consists of two courses: one on oral submissions, the other on cross-examination. You can find out more about these here, meet our leading faculty here, and meet our talented participants here, both practising attorneys and testifying experts. If you would like to attend a mock hearing and follow the oral submissions live, you can find out more here.


Every Monday from 31 August to 23 November (with a break in the week of 12 October), ROAP participants on the oral submissions course will be engaging in mock hearings run as live webinars, one at 2pm-3.30pm and the other at 5pm-6.30pm. Below, you can register to attend one or more of the first 24 mock hearings (the remaining 24 will be added in mid-October), and find out who will be speaking at each one and the subject matter for their submissions. For less experienced practitioners, this is a great way to learn advocacy: by seeing it in practice! If you would like to leave feedback on a ROAP participant's advocacy, you can do so here, it will be conveyed to the advocate and received with thanks.
