Chapter 10 - Is Investment Treaty Arbitration a Mechanism to Second-guess Governments' Exercise of Administrative Discretion: Public Law or Lex Investoria - Investment Treaty Arbitration and International Law - Volume 8
PROFESSOR SOURGENS: You are in the hands of one of our veterans--really more by experience than age, of course--and I’m looking forward to a very riveting discussion of an issue that I think links up nicely with some of the things that we’ve heard earlier as well as during the keynote.
Mr. Tim Nelson, at Skadden in New York. I will leave it, Tim, to you to introduce the rest of the panel. I’m very much looking forward to the discussion.
MR. NELSON: Thank you very much. It’s once again a privilege to be here and to be discussing a very important emerging issue.
We have a very distinguished panel. From my furthest onwards, we have Mr. Matthew Kronby, of Bennett Jones in Toronto; we have Ms. Janet Whittaker, of Simpson Thacher in New York; we have Professor Joshua Karton, of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario; we have Ms. Caline Mouawad, of King & Spalding New York; and we have Professor Julián Cárdenas Garcia, Visiting Professor at the University of Houston and Doctoral Fellow at the University of Bourgogne in Dijon in France, and a very distinguished Venezuelan scholar.
So, we have two young and energetic scholars, Mr. James Egerton-Vernon, of Jones Day; and we have Mr. Paul Barker, from Cleary Gottlieb, based in London.
