Dr Seyadi a member of ICCA
The International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) has granted Dr Reyadh Mohammad Seyadi, assistant professor of Commercial Law in College of Law at UoB, the membership of the Council.
Dr Seyadi said, â€œI was pleased to be selected as a member of the ICCA, which is considered one of the most important non-governmental international organisations concerned with the international commercial arbitration and its applicationsâ€. He hinted to the fact that the Council, with its headquarters in The Hague (Netherlands), is accredited to the United Nations.
International commercial arbitration is considered an alternative way to solve commercial disputes. ICCA publishes a number of refereed journals, and holds conferences, workshops and specialised courses.
Dr Seyadi added, â€œThe Council has contributed substantially in the birth of the Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The Law has been adopted by more than 90 countries around the world including the Kingdom of Bahrain.
