The Association was established in 2013, for the purposes of promoting arbitration as a dispute settlement mechanism, supporting the development of the arbitration law and practice in Serbia and the region as well as educating and raising public awareness of the importance of arbitration and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. The membership in the Association is open to graduate lawyers and arbitration practitioners notwithstanding their nationality or age.
