On October 21, 2011, keynote speaker Gary Born leads an international group of experts in a frank discussion of issues that can arise when parties combine litigation tactics with international commercial arbitration. The symposium, entitled “Border Skirmishes: The Intersection Between Litigation and International Commercial Arbitration,” will be held at the award-winning Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution at the University of Missouri School of Law. Associated events include a works-in-progress conference where authors discuss their current research with other specialists and a student writing competition sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) North American Branch. The registration fee for the symposium, including an “early bird” session concerning the new ICC Rules of Arbitration, is $50, and online registration is available here.
