The Reporters of the Restatement of the U.S. Law of International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration will lead panel discussions on key issues that were the focus of debate or controversy during its decade-long development.
George A. Bermann FCIArb, Professor of Columbia Law School and Reporter for the Restatement, will lead this program.
The speakers will address matters of practical concern to arbitration practitioners and will explain how certain issues were resolved to serve the interests of clarity, predictability and, in some instances, the promotion of best practices in international arbitration in the United States, including:
“Delegation” of gateway issues
Forum non conveniens
Interim measures as arbitral awards
Grounds for vacatur of awards made in the U.S.
Arbitration on a class basis
Manifest disregard of law
Discovery under 28 U.S.C. § 1782
The Reporters will be joined by Advisers who made significant contributions to the work of the Restatement.
