Become a YAF Representative

The ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (YAF) is currently recruiting new Representatives for its Regional Chapters for the 2017-2020 mandate.

ICC YAF is looking for motivated young arbitration experts (of approximately 40 years and under) to join the ICC YAF North America chapter.

Description of the position:

ICC YAF organizes an average of 100 events per year worldwide. These are “local” initiatives to attract the younger generation of arbitration and ADR practitioners to get together and share experiences in arbitration. ICC YAF events are organized in traditional arbitration hubs like London, Paris, Hong Kong, New York, as well as in cities like Montevideo, Curitiba, Bucharest, Kiev, Riga, Jeddah, Ahmedabad, Jakarta, Cleveland or Harvard. Such ICC YAF conferences are most often hosted by a law firm. They are short, interactive and are usually followed by networking drinks or another “social” activity.

ICC YAF’s activities are globally coordinated by the ICC YAF Global Coordinating Committee (GCC) and organized in each region by the ICC YAF Regional Head of Chapter.

ICC YAF is now offering the opportunity to young practitioners to become ICC YAF Regional Representatives . The term for all Chapter representatives is two and half years and usually 6-8 representatives are appointed per region.
Aside multiple local and regional events, all Chapter Representatives will have the opportunity to participate and take an active organizing role in the ICC YAF Global Conference, which takes place every 2 years, with the next one scheduled to take place on 9-10 June 2017.
