SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The subject of this course shall be directed to studying arbitration, mediation, compulsory settlement negotiations with the assistance of lawyers and more generally the main features of ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolutions) procedures.

In particular, in its first part, lessons shall be devoted to the examination of the various categories of arbitration and the distinction between arbitration and other instruments ad finiendas lites (for example, "arbitraggio" and contractual expertise; conciliation, mediation and A.D.R. – Alternative Dispute Resolutions; arbitration"rituale" or "irrituale"; ad hoc or institutional arbitration; civil or commercial arbitration; domestic, foreign or international arbitration; compulsory arbitration). In this regard, shall also be considered the sources of the legislation on arbitration: the Italian Civil Procedure Code (articles 806 to 840) and other regulations; the international Conventions in the matter of Arbitration (New York Convention of 1958 on the recognition and enforcement of foreign awards, Geneva Convention of 1961 on the International Commercial Arbitration, Washington Convention of 1965 on the resolution of investments disputes between States and citizens of other States); the Rules of Arbitration Chambers or Institutions.

The second part of this course shall be directed to analyzing arbitration law as laid down either in articles 806 to 840 of Civil Procedure Code and in other regulations, like arbitration in corporate disputes (articles 34 to 37 of legislative decree 17 January 2003 no. 5). In particular, the following issues shall be studied: arbitration agreements; the arbitrators: their role; appointment; duties, rights and liabilities; arbitration proceedings; the award and its appeals; etc.

The final part of this course shall be devoted to the study either of the general legislation on mediation on civil and commercial disputes provided by legislative decree 4 March 2010 no. 28, and of the legislation on compulsory settlement negotiations with the assistance of lawyers enforced by decree no. 132/2014 and other particular instruments of mediation, and, more generally, of the A.D.R. – Alternative Dispute Resolutions as instruments aimed at resolving disputes alternatively to court proceedings in both domestic or international fields.
