Access to this “arbitration club,” where we each represent different racial platforms across different jurisdictions, to open the door to more practitioners. One avenue is to address the socio-economic limitation for many entering our field with a focus on community building for young and mid-level practitioners.

To this end and unless deemed necessary, we will not charge a membership fee to join REAL.

We are in the process of creating a scholarship for our members to attend arbitration events and training courses. 



To create a level-playing field, we want to share knowledge on international arbitration.

To go ahead in life it is necessary to have mentors.  We therefore are in the process of developing a mentorship program. 

We want to share events that deal with diversity and where our members participate

If you have a show case an event relating to diversity or where our members are speaker, please contact us.

Representation and inclusion in all forms are important.  Together we are stronger. 

We want to share all other local, regional, and global efforts dealing with international arbitration.
