Liz Snodgrass (Counsel) and Simon Consedine (Senior Associate) appeared at the recent Columbia International Arbitration Association (CIAA) speaker series discussing “Breaking [Fake] News about Arbitration”.  The talk, held on 17 October, addressed the negative perception of arbitration and discussed the most common misconceptions around this form of dispute resolution through the lens of domestic (consumer) arbitration in the U.S. as well as international arbitration.

The CIAA is Columbia Law School’s only student association focusing exclusively on the topic of international arbitration  and with the guidance Professor George A. Bermann has hosted over 100 events to date, attracting global attention and participation by some of the most prominent names in the field.
