    9. 9. “Inherently, arbitration is practice oriented. To teach it only from an academic perspective would be difficult. The experience that these professors brought to the classroom was a game changer. I suppose the crucial thing was transforming this experience to classroom teaching, which they did very well. It could range from anecdotes to practical advice. From dealing with clients to dealing with arbitrators. Pretty much the whole spectrum. Simply because of the depth of their experience, every Sulabh Rewari question or discussion in class would draw from India Class of 2012 some experience in their professional lives.Perhaps one example could be Prof. Rigozzis course onsports arbitration. Several parts of that course drew fromhis professional experience, dealing with athletes or A. Rigozzi U. Neuchâtelassociations. You get to hear about how the CAS works inpractice, which would be impossible if he was exclusivelyan academic. ”
