NAI Young Arbitration Practitioners

The Netherlands Arbitration Institute created the working group NAI Young Arbitration Practitioners (NAI Jong Oranje) in order to offer anyone under forty years old who is interested in arbitration a platform for discussing various current and practical topics. In an informal way, you can meet others who share your interest or have gained experience in the arbitration practice. Meetings are freely accessible to all. The meetings are introduced by arbitration specialists and there is sufficient opportunity to ask questions and have discussions. The speakers are always willing to answer questions and do not shy away from discussion. After the meeting, a drinks reception is organised, where you can broaden your network in the field of arbitration.

The meetings are not only interesting for attorneys; company lawyers, scientific staff members, members and staff of the judiciary and other interested persons can also broaden their knowledge of arbitration here.



The Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) and Young NAI cordially
invite you 
to join them on Thursday 18 June 1700-1800 hrs CET for
