Founded by ArbitralWomen Director Amanda Lee, “Careers in Arbitration” is an electronic, web-based professional development resource created in response to the challenges faced by those aspiring to enter and excel in the field of international arbitration. Starting from the premise that law firms and organizations wish to hire the best people, regardless of gender, ethnicity, socio-economic background or geographic location, Careers in Arbitration aspires to level the recruitment playing field by sharing details of vacancies as widely as possible and developing resources to assist those entering the field.
Careers in Arbitration shares vacancies on LinkedIn using the hashtag #CareersinArbitration and encourages members of the arbitration community to do the same. This makes it easier for those searching for opportunities, wherever they are based in the world, to find suitable roles.
One of the resources currently under development by Amanda Lee as part of Careers in Arbitration is the ‘Careers in Arbitration Guide to Young Practitioner Organizations’, a comprehensive resource that identifies young practitioner organisations around the world and the benefits of joining and participating in them. This guide will be available by the end of 2019 or early 2020.
You can learn more about Careers in Arbitration here and follow the hashtag #CareersinArbitration here.

If you know of professional opportunities that you think would be of interest to the international arbitration community, please let her know so that she can help publicise such opportunities!
Founder Amanda Lee is an independent arbitrator and consultant at Seymours, London. She is a member of the Board of ArbitralWomen.
