Feedback of the Participants

  • "I liked a lot how everything was organized. Even if we compare it to the university education, here we had more practice and more intensive courses. Speakers have great experience since most of them are partners of law firms, and they are delighted to share it. This way participants acquire skills that are more practical. Delivered theoretical information is up to date, while it tends to be outdated in universities. And I liked the management of the Academy: the building is very commodious, all the relevant materials are sent by email on a daily basis and all the participants are provided with beverages (water and coffee). Kaysin (Dmitry Kaysin, EPAM) conducted a very interesting class. Although the participants were provided with relevant material for preparation, we still made mistakes, but this is what stands out, because if you make mistakes, this makes you remember the right answers.

    Solo practice in dispute resolution in Russian state courts

  • "I am dealing with dispute resolution in state courts and I want to note that I was excited to attend this course, even though international arbitration is not my domain, I am only indirectly related to it. Nevertheless, it was very useful broadening horizons wise. I would particularly like to highlight the lectures by Anna Grishchenkova. They were the most interesting, memorable and practically applicable for me. Thank you for this opportunity and for organization of such an event"
