New York International Arbitration Center and CIARB NY Branch Announce New York Arbitration Week: November 13-17, 2023


NEW YORK, July, 2023 – The New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC) and the New York Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArbNY) are pleased to continue their joint leadership of New York Arbitration Week (NYAW) for the fifth consecutive year.  This year, the event will take place in person from November 13–17, 2023.

In celebration of New York Arbitration Week’s fifth year, the theme of New York Arbitration Week 2023 is “New York, New York: A Celebration of New York Law and Arbitration”.  The theme aims to highlight the deep and multifaceted connection between international arbitration and New York City by including a variety of topics that focus on New York’s connection not only with the practice of international arbitration but also with numerous global jurisdictions.

Drawing on New York’s position as a global city, NYAW 2023 will engage both local and global practitioners, scholars, and thought leaders to showcase New York City as a leading destination for the international arbitration community.  Programming will highlight the diversity of New York practitioners and focus on the profound nexus between New York and international arbitration by exploring both the use  of New York law in contracts around the world, and the resolution  of global disputes in New York—including not only the role of New York as a seat of international arbitration but also the role of New York courts in facilitating arbitration.

We look forward to welcoming the global arbitration community in-person in New York.  Further details will be announced in the coming months.
