New Opportunities for Arbitration Lawyers: Climate Change, Outer Space and Human Rights
May 25, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Please join Young ArbitralWomen Practitioners (YAWP) for an international panel discussion hosted by Holland & Knight and supported by the Rising Arbitrators Initiative.

Arbitration has proved beneficial for numerous industries, including energy, construction and telecommunications. It also has shown potential beyond its traditional use. Our speakers will address three areas in which international arbitration is becoming increasingly relevant as a means for dispute resolution.

  • Climate Change: A highly debated and controversial issue that affects numerous industries and government policies, climate change is playing a bigger role and becoming a greater catalyst in international disputes.
  • Outer Space: Once strictly in the hands of governments, private capital continues to raise its bets on the industry with investments in satellites, space tourism and the viability of a colony on Mars or asteroid mining. The often specialized and international nature of space activities could make international arbitration the dispute resolution mechanism of choice.
  • Human Rights: The Hague Rules on Business and Human Rights Arbitration, launched in December 2019, help establish an international private judicial dispute resolution avenue available to parties involved in business and human rights issues as claimants and defendants.

We hope you will join us for this in-depth and informative presentation.
