Center to co-host two-day arbitration conference in the Dominican Republic

The Center is co-hosting a two-day conference entitled “Convergence and Divergence of Investment and International Commercial Arbitration” to take place on Nov. 19th and 20th in Santo Domingo. During this conference, some of the foremost arbitration practitioners and scholars will look into whether there is cross-fertilization between international commercial arbitration and investment arbitration. What the speakers want to do, with the help of the audience, which will be allowed to ask questions after the various sessions, is to determine whether international commercial arbitration and investment arbitration are necessarily to be considered so different that they cannot influence each other.

The Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law aims at the advancement of the study and practice of international business transactions and the way to solve related disputes either through litigation or arbitration. As commercial transactions become increasingly international, it is vital to the legal and business communities to understand and analyze the practices and legal principles that govern relationships between firms and between firms and consumers in the international arena
