19 July 2013 — Young ICCA and the University of Miami are pleased to announce that Eric Van Eyken of Appleton & Associates, Toronto, Canada is the recipient of the second annual Young ICCA University of Miami Scholarship. Eric will follow in the footsteps of previous recipient Wamiq Chowdhury and begin an LLM Degree in International Arbitration during the 2013/2014 academic year.
Eric said: “I am very grateful to the ICCA in granting me this opportunity to expand my understanding of international arbitration practice and international law through studying at the University of Miami. The ICCA scholarship will allow me to build upon my existing practice in international arbitration through learning from some of the world’s leading professors and practitioners. I am honoured to be selected from among the many accomplished members of the Young ICCA.”
Young ICCA Co-Chair, Timothy Foden, added “we are very excited for Eric. Although there were several well-qualified applicants, his application really stood out. Young ICCA is grateful to Prof. Keith Rosenn who reviewed the applications because of a conflict that prevented Prof. Paulsson from doing so. On behalf of my other Young ICCA Co-Chairs, Jim and Maria, we wish Eric the best next year”.
