Our Trainers

Through our roots at the Advocacy Training Programmes at the Inns of Court we have assembled a distinguished group of senior barristers, QCs, retired judges and arbitrators to provide the training.

Each has been certified as a trainer by his Inn of Court. All are specialist advocates in international arbitration, litigation or alternative dispute resolution. They have been carefully selected not only for their expertise as practitioners, but also as trainers of the highest quality.

IAA believes in partnering with training talent from around the world. We
draw on the expertise of practitioners from our partner organisations to help deliver the best possible training and greatest cross-cultural insights.
