The tireless Hanna Tuempel of the Dispute Resolution Services of the International Chamber of Commerce reminds us that the 7th ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition takes place in Paris on February 3-8, 2012.
In the competition, law students are faced with complex interational commercial problems that they must attempt to resolve by mediation conducted by the ICC’s ADR Rules.
