Professor Ferrari lectures at Bayreuth University on forum shopping

Professor Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Director, will give a talk in German on “forum shopping and the new rules of the German Arbitration Institution” (DIS) on the occasion of a two-day conference focusing on the new arbitration rules that came into force on 1 March 2018. In his talk, Professor Ferrari, who is an arbitration law and private international law expert, will focus on what characteristics of the new DIS rules may lead parties to choose the new rules over the rules of other arbitration institutions when opting for arbitration over litigation in courts.
