The King’s-Columbia Praelium is an annual celebration of advocacy, with two leading international advocates deploying their oratorical and advocacy skills arguing an important current legal issue before a distinguished three-member tribunal.

The Praelium will take place on Monday, 15 May 2017 at Middle Temple Hall from 6-8:30pm.  Registration will begin at 5:30pm.

This year’s advocates are: Jessica Gladstone (Clifford Chance) and Franz T Schwarz (Wilmer Hale).

This year’s tribunal is chaired by Mrs Jackie van Haersolte-van Hof (LCIA), with Professor George A. Bermann (Columbia Law School) and Judge David D. Caron (King’s College London and Iran-US Claims Tribunal) serving as co-arbitrators.

This year’s issue is the challenge of an ICSID arbitrator in a treaty arbitration on the basis of an alleged issue conflict.
