Our Annual International Arbitration Symposium for 2020 was postponed on account of the Covid-19 pandemic. We offer, in its place, a series of three webinars covering the planned topics from last year. Each will run about two hours and will be free to attendees.
We have added a networking session immediately following each webinar – each panelist will conduct a separate break-out session on a selected topic for about 45 minutes following the main program. This is an opportunity to interact in smaller groups with our panelists and other attendees.
