James Hosking to Debate the Desirability of Arbitrator Challenges at 33rd Annual ITA Workshop and Annual Meeting

Where Advocacy Meets Business

June 2021 – On Wednesday, June 16, at 2:10pm EST, James Hosking will participate in a mock debate at the 33rd Annual ITA Workshop and Annual Meeting. James will argue for the motion: “Challenges of Arbitrators Have Been on the Rise, Often for Tactical Reasons, and They Should Be Discouraged.” James will square-off against the formidable Melanie van Leeuwen of Derains Gharavi (Paris), in a debate moderated by Prof. Chiara Giorgetti of University of Richmond School of Law (Washington D.C.).  The (virtual) audience will get to determine who won the motion so be sure to register here.

Founded in 1986, the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA) was created to educate business executives, government officials and lawyers about arbitration as a means of resolving transnational business disputes and to promote global adherence to the world’s principal arbitration treaties. The Annual Workshop is a highlight of the arbitration calendar in the United States.
