This module also throws light on the international and institutional arbitration practices that would guide parties to choose seat of arbitration and facilitates selection of institutions."

It not only highlights the practicalities involved that are rare to find in the products available in the Indian market but also provides a detailed guidance on International and institutional arbitration, which is not available otherwise."
The module on Alternative Dispute Resolution is launched today and is available for public viewing and subscription.
