New York Arbitration Week
Welcome to New York Arbitration Week
New York Arbitration Week 2020 will include a deep dive into issues of non-signatories in arbitration hosted by CIArbNY and NYIAC and programs by leading international arbitral institutions, including a feature program of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce. Dynamic and interactive networking opportunities and discussion groups are also planned, with several shepherded by ArbitralWomen and the Young International Arbitration Practitioners of New York that will be scheduled during multiple time slots to maximize the inclusion of a truly global delegation. The capstone of New York Arbitration Week will be the Fordham Conference on International Arbitration and Mediation, with keynote speaker Professor George A. Bermann, Gelhorn Professor of Law and Monnet Professor in European Law at Columbia Law School. The Fordham Conference will also have a panel that looks at the different perspectives on the law that governs the arbitration clause and how that has impacted recent judicial decisions around the world. It is anticipated that all virtual programming during NYAW will offer CLE credit and be free of charge, with donations to justice organizations encouraged in lieu of registration fees and hosting services provided by FTI Consulting. More program information and registration links will be posted, as they become available, on this website and on the NYIAC and CIArbNY websites.
Co-Chairs Stephanie Cohen and Jeffrey A. Rosenthal note that virtual programming presents unique opportunities to connect New York thought leaders in international arbitration with a global audience. They state: “We look forward to engaging arbitration users and colleagues, both new and familiar, with topical and thought-provoking content. We are also cognizant that NYAW will take place at a time of incalculable loss and turmoil for the greater New York community and that NYAW presents an opportunity for the international arbitration community to give back and share its good fortune with others. Participants in NYAW programs will be invited to consider making a voluntary charitable contribution to the City Bar Justice Center, which increases access to justice for low-income and disadvantaged New Yorkers, the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund, Inc., which fights for racial justice in America, or to another charity of their choice.” Check back soon for donation links.
