Washington, DC as a Leader in Educating Our Next Generation of Arbitration Practitioners

This WAW panel will examine the benefits of advanced degrees in Washington D.C. in the practice of international arbitration and the key role that our programs play in building expertise, and reinforcing the increasing international nature of commerce and cross-cultural awareness. This panel will be particularly useful for young attorneys looking to expand their experience and attend one of DC’s leading law schools by addressing the following concerns: Regardless of how intellectually seductive and practically interesting international arbitration may be, is there sufficient demand for lawyers specializing in this field? What advantages does Washington, D.C. offer from a substantive and practical perspective that would be instrumental to train international arbitration practitioners and connect them with international arbitration firms, centers, and key stakeholders in international arbitration as potential options for work? Why not opt for a comparably reputable and more secluded academic experience away from international organizations, adjunct professors who teach what they practice as arbitrators, legal counsel at ICSID and other international organizations, counsel for private and sovereign clients, and think tanks?
