This project enables law students from different countries to participate in a simulated arbitration case on-line. The objective of this innovative e-training distance learning tool is to familiarize law students with law and practice of international commercial arbitration. International arbitration is more than another way to settle cross-border commercial disputes. It is a real forum where the law governing international economic relations is progressively elaborated, applied and enforced in a constantly changing world. Law students need to get themselves acquainted with this discipline, which is particularly adapted to the modern requirements of an increasingly globalized economy. Four Universities participated in the simulated arbitral proceedings using this tool: http://mockarbitrationonline.blogspot.gr/ The case selected was related to a multinational cross-border business transaction. Instead of using fictitious states (such as Utopia or Ruritania), specific countries were selected (such as Czech Republic, Ukraine and Greece), in order for students to apply the legal rules, which are actually in force in these countries.
