Half Year May Conference

Zurich

07 - 10 May 2014


Join us for a great AIJA experience in Zurich where you will have the opportunity to attend our top notch seminar “Learning from the Best” in the morning and choose between the workshops “Arbitration and Banking – does it fit” (Arbitration Commission) and a “Harvard style negotiation mock case” (SCILL and M&A Commission) in the afternoon. They all offer an excellent opportunity to learn more about negotiation techniques, as well as how to use your personal strengths and assets and get the best out of every situation. These interesting topics are presented by high level and experienced speakers and market players. Of course, these seminars will also be a great opportunity to meet colleagues and friends in Zurich. The Organizing Committee wishes you all a very warm welcome to Zurich.
