Professor Loukas Mistelis, the Clive M Schmitthoff Professor of Transnational Commercial Law and Arbitration and Director of the School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary University of London, received the best arbitration lecture award for 2013 from Global Arbitration Review (GAR), a leading resource on international arbitration news.
His lecture “Is there a Transnational Arbitration?” was delivered on 23 August 2013 at the National University of Singapore Law School as the 4th Kwa Geok Choo Distinguished Visiting Professor’s Lecture. The award is in recognition of the lecture’s quality, academic research and relevance for practice. The decision was made by a combination of public vote and judging panel. This is an excellent accolade for Professor Mistelis, due to the high calibre of the 2013 nominees and the previous winners. The award ceremony was held on 12 February 2014 at the George V Hotel, Paris.
