ICC YAAF: New York Conference Arbitration Debate

29 Sep 2022

New York, United States English
Start: 18.00 (EDT) | End: 20:30 (EDT)

Join our ICC YAAF Representatives (and special guest judge!) for an evening of debates regarding arbitrability and arbitrator appointment followed by a cocktail mix & mingle.

What is the best way to wrap up the 17th ICC New York Conference on International Arbitration? Join our ICC YAAF Representatives, along with special guest Rekha Rekha Rangachari from the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC), for a debate! Teams will argue in two separate debates: (1) a question of jurisdiction and (2) if institutions or parties should make arbitrator appointments. If you’re a young practitioner, LLM student, or just someone who loves a good debate about arbitration, this is the event for you! In addition to the great debate content, our host Reed Smith is treating attendees to a complementary cocktail hour, which will be a great opportunity to network with likeminded individuals.
