MS. REKHA RANGACHARI: Okay, everyone. Hello, we are thrilled to be going into our session to the topic here before us: Yes or No: the UNCITRAL Working Group III proposal on “Limit on Multiple Roles”. Is it a good idea? It is my great pleasure to welcome our speakers and authors for panel two, and introduce, of course, our moderator. Professor Kathleen Claussen is a professor of law at the University of Miami and it’s thrilling to introduce her since I was an alum, also of the law school there, she has served as counsel or arbitrator in over two dozen international disputes. And prior to joining academics, Associate General Counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative earlier prior to that also Legal Counsel at the PCA in The Hague, covering disputes between countries and investment law arbitrations. With that I see in Florida her, and oh, forgive me the fun fact that’s most important… she commutes from Virginia to the University of Miami remotely as appropriate, but also in person and her arms are very fatigued because of this. A secondary fun fact, both of the authors are previously students of Dr. De Gaulle. Thanks so much.
MS. KATHLEEN CLAUSSEN: Great, thank you so much. And thanks to Crowell and to the incredible organizing team, our co-chairs for putting together this event. I am privileged to direct this conversation more than to lead it. We have assembled here the “dream team” on this topic, and you’ll hear from each of them shortly. I’m going to dispense with reading the paragraphs that you all have in front of you on their bios so that we can get right into the meat of the conversation. But I encourage you to read about all of their terrific backgrounds.
