The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Peking University Law School (PKU LAW).

Under the MOU, SIAC and PKU LAW will work together to place law students from PKU in internships at SIAC. In addition, SIAC and PKU LAW will collaborate to incorporate a module on "SIAC and Institutional Arbitration" into the PKU law programme. Upon request by SIAC or PKU LAW, both parties will also conduct joint training programmes, seminars, workshops or other events in China to promote the development and practice of international arbitration.

The MOU was signed on 13 October 2018, at the SIAC Academy training course held in Beijing at PKU, by Ms Lim Seok Hui, Chief Executive Officer of SIAC, and Mr Guo Li, Vice Dean of PKU LAW. The signing was witnessed by Mr Han Kok Juan, Deputy Secretary, Singapore Ministry of Law, Mr Pan Jianfeng, Dean of PKU LAW, Mr Gary Born, President of the SIAC Court of Arbitration, Ms Fu Yulin, Professor of PKU LAW, Mr Kevin Nash, Deputy Registrar & Centre Director of SIAC and Ms Gao Wei, Associate Professor of PKU LAW.

Mr Gary Born, a pre-eminent authority in international arbitration, was the Chair of the teaching faculty for the SIAC Academy training course in Beijing, which included SIAC Court and Board members, other leading international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators, PKU LAW professors as well as the SIAC Secretariat.

Mr Guo Li, Vice Dean of PKU LAW, said, "We hope the SIAC Academy, which was jointly conducted by SIAC and PKU LAW over the course of the last two days, will be the first of a series of collaborations under the MOU, which will bring together academics and practitioners to share their unique insights and perspectives on international arbitration."

Ms Lim Seok Hui, CEO of SIAC, said, "It is a great honour and privilege to be given the opportunity to work closely with PKU LAW, one of the world's leading academic institutions. We firmly believe that this partnership will enable us to jointly promote the benefits of institutional arbitration to future generations of China's international arbitration experts."
