Fourteenth Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration

Juris Conferences is a leading organization developed to promote discourse among figures in international arbitration and dispute resolution. To date, we have presented over 100 conferences. Our goal is to give interested legal practitioners an entrée into these fora. As a division of JurisNet, LLC, the leading legal publisher of materials on arbitration and dispute resolution, Juris Conferences is in a prime position to provide the most accurate and relevant information to those practicing in the areas of arbitration and ADR.

JURIS Conference’s annual Investment Treaty Arbitration conference is “going digital.”  Starting on May 26, 2020, JURIS Conferences has been holding a weekly series of sessions with leading arbitration practitioners and scholars hosted on Zoom.

The 14th Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration conference tackles four questions of systemic reform in the field of international investment law and arbitration.

The fifth and last session, to be held on June 23, 2020, is the capstone Keynote Address by Lucinda Low (Steptoe) with an introduction and post-Address Q&A Session by Frédéric Sourgens (Washburn University School of Law).

Please join us for the KEYNOTE ADDRESS on

June 23, 2020 

from 4:00-5:00 PM EST /  20:00-21:00 CET

Keynote Address by Lucinda A. Low: The Difference Between Evolution and Revolution in Trade and Investment Dispute Settlement Mechanisms: Of Chaos, Crossroads, and the ‘R’ Factor

In her Address, Lucinda Low will address whether the systems (ISDS and WTO) are in chaos and in need of complete revamping, or whether there are more incremental reforms that could address the issues that have been raised about both systems throughout the conference. Ms. Low will argue that both systems--ISDS and WTO--are at a crossroads, and she will elaborate on a number of specific areas where system reforms could be implemented. Some proposed reforms, such as eliminating barriers to negotiated resolutions, will tie into topics covered in earlier sessions of the conference series, while others (such as consolidation) may be new to the discussion.
