The ICC Institute of World Business Law
The ICC Institute of World Business Law acts as a think-tank working closely with the ICC International Court
of Arbitration. Its Council is composed of 40 members of 21 nationalities, all experienced professionals or academics in international business law or international commercial arbitration. Created over 30 years ago,
the Institute provides research, training and information to the legal profession concerned with the development of international business law. In line with its philosophy of excellence, it proposes publications, trainings
and conferences on different topics related to international business law.
The Corporate Counsel International Arbitration Group (CCIAG)
The Corporate Counsel International Arbitration Group (CCIAG) is an association of corporate counsel from over 90 multinational companies from all around the world focused on international dispute resolution.
