AtlAS August Hybrid Plenary Meeting


AtlAS August Hybrid Plenary Meeting

Presented by the Atlanta International Arbitration Society (AtlAS)

CLE Webinar Credit: CLE Credit Pending
Event Recording: LINK

AtlAS invites you to join a program dedicated to international mediation and the new Georgia Uniform Mediation Act, legislation drafted by and passed with the society’s support.

Georgia’s new statute incorporates the UNCITRAL Modal Law on International Mediation, which is designed to create a more favorable legal framework for international dispute resolution. Georgia is the first state in the United States to pass this law.

Speakers will include individuals who were instrumental in the legislative process, who will provide their remarks on the potential impact of the new statute and the growing use of mediation as an alternative mechanism for expediting and resolving international arbitrations.
