ICC YAF: A Conversation with Arbitration Practitioners From Around the World – Different Perspectives on Common Themes

Atlanta, Georgia, • English

The ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) and the Atlanta International Arbitration Society Young Practitioner Group (AtlAS YPG) are co-hosting a panel discussion at the Atlanta Center for International Arbitration and Mediation on October 22, 2017. Arnall Golden Gregory, King and Spalding, JAMS, Alston & Bird, and Miller & Martin, and Kilpatrick Townsend and Womble Carlyle are generously sponsoring this event.


The panel discussion and afternoon coffee break will kick-off the Atlanta International Arbitration Society’s 6th Annual Conference. As we discuss common arbitration challenges, we will benefit from the different perspectives offered by our panelists from across the globe.

Who should attend?

This roundtable is aimed at young arbitration practitioners: counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The event will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to enrich their network in the region.
