Patricia awarded the SCC "Boosting the Capital" Prize


"Mother of ICAL" Patricia Shaughnessy was awarded the SCC “Boosting the capital” prize for her involvement in the birth and development of the ICAL Masters program.

The prize serves to distinguish individuals who have contributed in making the Stockholm capital region more innovative, inclusive and open.

And indeed - Patricia was granted the distinction for her “impressive work with the International Master's Program International Commercial Arbitration at Stockholm University, an important part of the infrastructure that makes Stockholm a leading seat for international disputes and contributes to the capital city's global brand".

Commenting on the award, Patricia notes that "The ICAL program has become a recognized global leader in legal education for arbitration, promoting both arbitration in Stockholm and legal education at Stockholm University.  Many alumni now work in law firms, companies, organizations and universities where they contribute to arbitration and promote arbitration in Stockholm".  A full interview is available on the SCC website.

On behalf of the whole ICAL community, the ICALAA Board wishes to extend its sincere thanks and congratulations to Patricia.
