Investor State Arbitration: A Force For Good?

  • November 19, 2019
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Australia Young Members Group invites you to a stimulating debate on investor-state arbitration.

Investor-state arbitration is an exciting and rapidly developing area of law, yet remains a flashpoint for controversy in politics and international relations. At this event, emerging practitioners from some of Australia’s leading arbitration practices will debate whether investor-state arbitration is a force for good.  To make matters a little more interesting, speakers have been allocated to the affirmative and negative teams at random; so opinions and arguments presented at this event do not necessarily reflect the views of the speakers, nor the organisations with which they are affiliated.

A light lunch will be provided for attendees, thanks to the generosity of our host, King & Wood Mallesons.

Moderator: Kristian MaleyChair, CIArb Australia Young Members Group and CIArb Australia Board Member
