It generally reflects the actual arbitration proceedings. It may be designed in various structures according to the purpose of the exercise.
Arbitration institutions organised mock arbitration workshops to enhance their members’ quality and experiences on arbitration proceedings. Mock arbitration involves presenting summary arguments parallel with the arbitration structure to a panel of mock arbitrators chosen to reflect your actual arbitrator or arbitration panel. It helped student to play these three roles: critic, fact finder and advisor.
