The Dickson Poon School of Law, The Center for International Commercial & Investment Arbitration at Columbia University and Three Crowns present The King’s-Columbia Praelium 2017.
The King’s-Columbia Praelium is an annual celebration of advocacy, with two leading international advocates deploying their oratorical and advocacy skills arguing an important current legal issue before a distinguished three-member tribunal.
This year’s advocates are: Jessica Gladstone (Clifford Chance) and Franz T Schwarz (Wilmer Hale).
This year’s tribunal is chaired by Mrs Jackie van Haersolte-van Hof (LCIA), with Professor George A. Bermann (Columbia Law School) and Judge David D. Caron (King’s College London and Iran-US Claims Tribunal) serving as co-arbitrators.
This year’s issue is the challenge of an ICSID arbitrator in a treaty arbitration on the basis of an alleged issue conflict.
A reception will follow the event.
