Welcome to the homepage of Prof. Dr. Stefan Kröll.

I am an internationally operating arbitrator with experience of more than 85 arbitrations in all areas of national and international business law including the involvement of state parties. In the relevant rankings I am regularly named as one of the leading German experts in the field of international arbitration.

Since January 2022 I am Chairman of the Board of Directors of the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS).

I combine my practice as an arbitrator with extensive academic activities as Professor for International Dispute Resolution at Bucerius Law School and Director of its Center for International Dispute Resolution. In addition, I regularly give lectures and talks at other leading institutions in Germany and abroad and am a Visiting Professor at the School of International Arbitration, University of London.

Since 2012 I am a Director of the Willem C. Vis Arbitration Moot in Vienna, the leading student competition in the fields of international commercial law and arbitration with more than 350 participating Universities.

My publications include several internationally renowned monographs, treatises and commentaries, as well as a considerable number of articles in international journals.

I am one of Germany’s national correspondents at UNCITRAL and have been retained by UNCITRAL as one of three experts to prepare the DIGEST on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration.
