Symposium on Investor-State Arbitration


The Law School will host lawyers, academics, and students from around the world at a symposium, Investor-State Arbitration: Perspectives on Legitimacy and Practice, on Friday, Oct. 31, preceding the inaugural Foreign Direct Investment International Moot Competition (FDI Moot). 
The event includes a lineup headlined by Judge Stephen Schwebel, former president of the International Court of Justice, and Professor Jose Alvarez of Columbia University Law School, former president of the American Society of International Law. 

The symposium will give those gathered an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in international investment regulation and dispute resolution. 

It is co-sponsored by the American Society of International Law and the law firm of Dechert LLP. 

The papers from this conference will be published in a special symposium issue of Suffolk's Transnational Law Review.

Suffolk Law School recognizes the importance of internationalization of legal education and offers a broad array of courses in international law as well as an International Law Concentration. Students may participate in international internships, and a summer program at the University of Lund in Sweden provides law students an opportunity to participate in comparative and international public and private law courses. Suffolk Law School offers an LL.M. in Global Technology and an L.L.M in U.S. Law for International Business Lawyers in cooperation with Hungary’s Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE) in Budapest.
