ITA Winter Forum: February 2-3, 2012, San Francisco

The Institute for Transnational Arbitration has announced the content of its 2012 Winter Forum, and is including several topics of interest to private international law. The program includes, inter alia, discussions on the Role of Courts in Aid of International Arbitration and Precedent and Accuracy in Arbitration, and a Luncheon Interview with Prof. George A. Bermann, Chief Reporter of the ALI Restatement (Third) of the US Law of International Commercial Arbitration.

According to Susan Frank, one of the Co-Chairs of the Forum, “This is not just another arbitration conference. Rather it is the first of its kind that seeks to build upon ITA’s academic tradition and bring together practitioners and academics, executives and government officials, at both the junior and senior levels to foster a collaborative exchange on international arbitration. The first half of the forum will be targeted towards a group of works-in-progress, [and] the afternoon session we will be a Tylney-Hall style interactive discussion.”
