Time: 5:00 - 8:00pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre, Centre for Commercial Law Studies, 67-69 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3JB
In this joint event our idea is to contribute to the substantive discussion about the role of European Union as actor and its applicable laws in international arbitration. We are thinking about leaving behind the rhetoric counterattacks and propose to engage in the reasons as to why arbitration in the EU matters and remains attractive.
