The professor said: “course is intended for several thematic lectures on international commercial arbitration and aims to discuss the practical issues that arise in this area. During the classes students ask questions, exchange thoughts and judgments. Thus they outline the prospects for the future life and learning in this way is effective. Therefore, due to Fulbright exchange program international education improves mutual understanding and establishing a network of personal and professional contacts”.
