ICC YAAF: Flying into the Future with Aerospace & Aviation Arbitration

04 Apr 2024

Washington D.C English
Start: 17:30 (ET) - End: 20:00 (ET)

Join us on Arizona State University's Washington, D.C. campus for a panel focused on aerospace and aviation arbitration.

Speakers will discuss how the aerospace and aviation industries continue to evolve due to commercialization, privatization, regulation, the entrance of new players, the impact these changes have had upon contracting and dispute resolution practices. Panelists will also discuss what the future may hold. They will close by giving advice for in-house counsel, arbitration practitioners, and soon-to-be future lawyers interested in being part of the next chapter of aerospace and aviation dispute resolution.

Who should attend?

Open to those aged 40 and under, YAAF provides opportunities for individuals to gain knowledge, develop their skills and understand ICC’s arbitral procedure and other dispute resolution services.
