In partnership with Gary Born, the online course will provide legal professionals with detailed, timely treatment of all legal and practical aspects of international arbitration.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. announced that registration is now open for Born's International Arbitration Lecture Series. This online course is presented by Gary Born, Partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, and preeminent authority on international commercial and investment arbitration.

Wolters Kluwer's partnership with Mr. Born is its latest move to deliver deep domain expertise to legal professionals who practice international arbitration. The comprehensive lecture series is designed to provide viewers with the opportunity to develop or improve their knowledge of international arbitration at their own pace. Throughout the series, Mr. Born provides detailed, up-to-date treatment of all legal and practical aspects of international arbitration, including arbitration agreements, international arbitral procedures and awards, investment arbitration and state-to-state arbitration.

Mr. Born has taught at leading law schools in North America, Asia, Europe and Latin America. The lectures are based on extensive classroom experience and designed for use around the world. The series includes 27 chapters - each containing a series of 20-30 minute lectures – covering basic topics in the Foundation Course and advanced topics on selected subjects.

“I have spent my career learning and teaching about international arbitration. I developed the Lectures because I believe that their practical and academic content, and their accessibility, will be invaluable to lawyers, law students, professors, government officials and others interested in international commercial and investment arbitration,” said Mr. Born. “I appreciate the support of Wolters Kluwer, and colleagues around the world, who have made the Lectures possible.”
