The 4th annual Cambridge Arbitration Day organised by the Cambridge University Graduate Law Society is an endeavour to bring together scholars, practitioners and students for a discussion on recent developments in the field of international arbitration.
The event will be preceded by the Young Practitioners’ Event organised with ICC Young Arbitrators Forum on 17 March 2017, aimed at encouraging young practitioners to exchange professional experience and network with a view to strengthen links within the young arbitration community.
The CAD / 2017 events will bring together distinguished lawyers, arbitrators and academics, who are among the leading authorities in international arbitration, creating a unique opportunity for students and other attendees to share experiences and gain insight into some of the most significant and dynamic issues in the field.
In order to achieve its educational purpose, participation at the Conference is free of charge for those attending.
