Readers, if you are in Washington on February 10, I invite you to attend a panel discussion on “The Effects of the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements on International Arbitration,” being held at Jones Day’s Washington office from 9 to 11 a.m. The event is part of the Georgetown International Arbitration Society’s fourth annual International Arbitration Month. The panelists, in addition to yours truly, are Christophe Bernasconi (Secretary General of the Hague Conference), Peter Trooboff (Covington & Burling), Prof. David Stewart (Georgetown), and Charles Kotuby (Jones Day). The panel will be moderated by Maria I. Pradilla Picas.

Just to give you a preview, I’m planning to talk about COCA in the context of competition among different forums for dispute resolution business.

You can RSVP for the event here.
