  • Are under 40.

  • 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.

The 2017-2018 Young ICCA Mentoring Programme is now accepting Mentee applications

Young ICCA is pleased to announce the launch of the fourth cycle of its successful Mentoring Programme. Mentee applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 Young ICCA Mentoring Programme. The deadline for applications to participate as Mentees in the upcoming cycle is 15 October 2016. The Programme will commence in January 2017 and, depending on the availability of Mentors, will comprise 10 to 15 mentoring groups.   

What is Young ICCA’s Mentoring Programme?
The Programme connects 3-4 successful Mentee applicants to a "Mentor" – a senior arbitration expert who is usually a member of ICCA’s Governing Board – and to a "Buddy" – an established arbitration practitioner. Together, the Mentor, Buddy and Mentees form a "Mentoring Group".

Each Mentoring Group will work together for 2 years. During this period, the Mentor and Buddy will be available to each Mentee to provide advice and career guidance, as well as to impart arbitration wisdom and practical know-how. Guidelines outlining the role of each Mentoring Group participant – Mentor, Buddy and Mentee – and possible activities are available here.   

The Young ICCA Mentoring Programme provides a unique platform for young professionals to connect with and learn from the experience of more senior members of the arbitration community. As such, it falls squarely within Young ICCA’s mandate of opening the doors of international arbitration to young practitioners worldwide.

Who should apply and how?
All current Young ICCA members are eligible to apply to become Mentees in the 2017-2018 Young ICCA Mentoring Programme (you can become a Young ICCA member by submitting an application here). Students and young professionals interested in international arbitration are encouraged to apply.

To submit an application to participate in the 2017-2018 Young ICCA Mentoring Programme, please complete the Mentoring Programme application form and submit this form along with your CV and a one-page letter of motivation describing your expectations from the Mentoring Programme and your motivations for applying. Applications should be sent via email to mentoring@youngicca.org

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

How are successful Mentee applicants chosen?
In selecting Young ICCA Members for participation in the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme, Young ICCA aims to achieve a broad diversity and a wide geographical distribution, including appropriate representation of Mentee applicants from countries that are underrepresented in the international arbitration sphere.

As set forth above, applicants are required to submit their CV and a one-page letter of motivation with their application.  As places in the Mentoring Programme are limited, the letter of motivation plays an important part in the selection process as it assists Young ICCA both to ensure that successful Mentee applicants demonstrate an appropriate level of commitment and motivation and to appropriately match Mentees with Mentors and Buddies.

The deadline for applications to participate in the 2017-2018 Mentoring Programme is 15 October 2016. Successful applicants will be informed individually of their admission to the Programme by the end of 2016. Young ICCA will also notify unsuccessful applicants.

Note that, in response to feedback received from many members, Young ICCA has decided to stagger the mentoring cycles.  In other words, if you are unable to apply or unsuccessful this year, you will be able to apply next year (in the fall) for a two-year cycle starting in January 2018.
 
For questions, please contact the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme Coordinators, David Kim and Maria Athanasiou at: mentoring@youngicca.org.

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
