Workload and benefits of participating in the ICC Mediation Competition

Participating in the ICC Mediation Competition involves a lot of time and requires commitment and individual initiative.  Nevertheless, participation is reconcilable with the simultaneous pursuit of regular studies.

Participants will enjoy a unique opportunity to improve their skills in the fields of negotiation and dispute resolution under the eyes of the leading international mediators taking part in the Competition.  Additional benefits include intercultural experience of immeasurable value and a week in Paris, not to mention a great opportunity to further improve one’s business English.  A CV which can boast participation in the ICC Mediation Competition showcases great initiative and superior skills.

Successful participation will be rewarded with 12 ECTS Credit Points.  For law students, participation in the ICC Mediation Competition is recognized either as a “Lehrveranstaltung zur Vermittlung interdisziplinärer Schlüsselqualifikationen“ (sect. 9(1) No. 2 lit. d JAG) or as a “fremdsprachige rechtswissenschaftliche Lehrveranstaltung“ (sect. 9(1) No. 2 lit. e JAG).  Participation in the Competition may also lead to the raising of the state exam grade (sect. 19(3) JAG).

Thanks to our sponsors we are able to cover registration, travel and accommodation expenses.  We are further supported in our preparation by Marburg students of speech science.
