Thu, May 11, 2017, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM BST
Forming part of the California State Bar's "Week in Legal London" series, you are cordially invited to:
"International Dispute Resolution and the Rule of Law in a post-liberal, post-factual age"
This seminar will explore the implications of the tumultuous events of 2016 for international dispute resolution, the rule of law, and the future of English jurisprudence. With the apparent rejection of the neo-liberal world order on both sides of the Atlantic, Anglo-Saxon retrenchment into isolationism and protectionism not only opens the global stage to China, but risks negatively affecting trade and trading relations worldwide.
This seminar will look at:
Panel 1: Moderator Peter Rogan (JAMS International)
- The acceptability of English jurisprudence post-Brexit, with reference to regionalisation and competition from other international centres of dispute resolution
- How President Trump’s policies will impact international trade and the implications for the Rule of Law
Sir Bernard Rix (20 Essex Street)
Ben Giaretta (Ashurst LLP)
Melanie Willems (Andrews Kurth)
Panel 2: Moderator Tim Hardy (CMS Cameron McKenna)
- Best practice:
- the growing homogeneity of procedure in an increasingly fragmented and diversified market
- Ethical considerations, and conflict of interest guidelines in the absence of global consensus
Wendy Miles QC (Debevoise & Plimpton)
Joe Tirado (JAMS International)
Cyrus Benson (Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP)
Angeline Welsh (Matrix Chambers)
