  • Can demonstrate a genuine interest in pursuing a career in the practice of arbitration.
  • Membership of Young ICCA is entirely separate from membership of ICCA itself. Not all Members can be accommodated in the Mentoring Programme

(To request the email address of a Young ICCA member, please contact Lauren Voges at lvoges@pca-cpa.org).

The 2015-2016 Young ICCA Mentoring Programme is now underway. The next opportunity to apply for the Mentoring Programme will be at the end of 2016.

The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme connects successful applicants to a Mentor (an ICCA Governing Board Member or ICCA Advisory Member) and to a Young ICCA Advisory Member (“Buddy”) for a period of two years. During this period, Mentees can benefit from the exchange of arbitration know-how and career advice within their Mentoring Groups, which typically comprise a Mentor, a Buddy and three Mentees.

Places are limited.

The Programme works according to the following guidelines:

  • Mentors and Buddies answer reasonable queries from their Mentees regarding career development, arbitration practice and arbitration know-how.
  • Mentors and Buddies “meet” with Members together or individually at least twice per year (by phone, video conference or in-person meetings).
  • Buddies answer reasonable requests from Members for know-how (e.g., academic articles and, where appropriate, practice related materials).

No fee is charged for participation in the Mentoring Programme and no financial benefits or funding are available through the Mentoring Programme.

In selecting Young ICCA members for participation in the Programme, Young ICCA aims to achieve broad diversity and a wide geographical distribution, and to include candidates from countries that currently are underrepresented in the practice of international arbitration.

For questions, please contact: mentoring@youngicca.org


Those applicants who cannot be accommodated in the Mentoring Programme are strongly encouraged to participate in other Young ICCA activities.

These activities include:

  • organising Young ICCA events in your region
  • coordinating and contributing to the Young ICCA Facebook page
  • coordinating and contributing to the Young ICCA blog and publications pages
  • participating in special projects
