Delos, a prize-winning arbitration institution, runs the Programme which provides participants with the opportunity to develop their oral advocacy skills, hone cross-examination techniques, and engage with remote hearings, all while being mentored by leading international arbitration advocates. 

Michael, along with his paired lawyer Santiago Lucas Peña of Bomchil, were announced as the winners following their participation in the Delos LATAM cross-examination of quantum experts course. 

The course provided participants with expert report materials and saw Michael take on the role of the expert under a mock tribunal setting in which he defended the expert reports in the Spanish language. Participants also supported their paired lawyer in preparing their cross-examination of the opposing side’s experts. 

The final took place on Tuesday 23rd January, and Michael and Santiago were announced as winners by the Tribunal based on their impressive performance.
