The Washington University School of Law’s International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Symposium aims to establish a forum in which top practitioners, academics, attorneys, and students gather on an annual basis to:

  • Explore sophisticated topics in international arbitration and dispute resolution;
  • Advance the development of international arbitration and dispute resolution;
  • Educate the next generation of lawyers; and
  • Provide networking opportunities.

The program seeks to advance conversations on international arbitration and dispute resolution by bringing together private practitioners, in-house and government counsel, academics, arbitration and mediation institutions, and engaging users of international arbitration and dispute resolution, particularly those from the Midwest. CLE credit is offered to lawyers who attend this symposium.  Course credit may be awarded to students of Washington University School of Law, in conjunction with courses in international arbitration and international business transactions.
