LKK partner Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler was invited to speak at Columbia Law School’s 7th annual Arbitration Day, which was held in New York City on 19 February 2016.


This year’s conference was entitled “The System Reexamined: Challenging Assumptions in International Arbitration”. Panel speakers addressed topics such as the current trends and prospects for class arbitrations, the role of auxiliaries and associated conflicts of interests, and the enforcement of arbitral awards in violation of international law. Prof. Kaufmann-Kohler participated in the panel discussing the challenges to the legitimacy of international arbitration, dealing in particular with the issues of transparency, diversity and inclusiveness in the conduct of arbitral proceedings.
