The "Nuts & Bolts" of International Arbitration
February 9, 2009
Organized by the American Bar Association's Section of International Law in collaboration with its Law Student, LLM, & New Lawyer Outreach Committee, the Section of Dispute Resolution, and Georgetown’s International Arbitration Group. This program will be the first one of the Section’s “Nuts & Bolts” series, which is designed to provide foundational (i.e., “bridge the gap”) programming to J.D. and LLM law students and young lawyers who are practicing, or want to practice, international law. Specifically, this program, which is being offered for CLE credit, will compare and contrast the basic substantive aspects and differences of arbitration conducted at international fora such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), NAFTA (Chapter 11- Investor-State), and the World Trade Organization. Also, speakers will focus on the most recent developments in international arbitration generally, as well as share insights on how to stay up to date on the latest developments in international arbitration, and what can be done to advance oneself early in a career. This event will be held at the Georgetown University Law Center, Hart Auditorium in McDonough Hall, from 2:00-3:30 p.m.
