Posted by Bradley in : Uncategorized , trackback

On Friday 16 January, from 8.30 am to 10.00 am, as part of the Global Business Forum which is taking place at UM, the Law School will hold a session on international commercial arbitration. The session will take place in the School of Business, Storer Auditorium, 1st floor, Aresty Building. The speakers will be Jan Paulsson, whose appointment to the Michael Klein Distinguished Scholar Chair at UM has just been announced, and John Rooney, a partner at Shutts & Bowen LLP whose work relating to international arbitration includes being designated as the Inter-American Bar Association’s representative to the arbitration working group of the United Nations Commission for International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). I’ll be moderating the session.

Here’s the description of the session:

— International Commercial Arbitration – Miami Style
Description: Globalization and international trade give rise to transnational disputes and, increasingly, businesses and governments are turning to international commercial arbitration as the preferred means of resolving their differences. Miami is poised to become a significant international arbitration venue, particularly for cases involving one or more Latin American parties, and important segments of large arbitration providers and the local bar have focused on this field as a growth industry. This panel offers a wealth of expertise for the benefit of the academic and practice communities.
