November 2021 – On Thursday, November 11th, ICDR Young and International (Y&I) will be hosting two virtual panel discussions on the law applicable to the arbitration agreement, topics that are the subject of this year’s Vis Moot problem. The panels will discuss how to determine which jurisdiction’s law should apply and how different laws (i.e., substantive laws, procedural laws, specialized laws (such as the CISG)) can or should apply to interpret an arbitration agreement. Chaffetz Lindsey’s Marcel Engholm Cardoso – along with Jessica Beess und Chrostin (King and Spalding) – will moderate esteemed panels that include: Maxi Scherer (Wilmer Hale, London); Patricia Shaughnessy (Stockholm University, Stockholm); Joseph Schwartz (WAGNER Arbitration, Berlin); Dana MacGrath (MacGrath Arbitration, New York); Franco Ferrari (New York University, New York); Samantha J. Rowe (Debevoise & Plimpton, London).
The program is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. EST / 3:30 p.m. CET / 8:00 p.m. IST. To register for “Where to Go and What to Do When You Get There: Identifying the Law Applicable to the Arbitration Agreement,” click here.
