The 2019 ILA Regional Conference in Slovenia is the first ILA conference organized by the ILA Slovene Branch. It will take place in the beautiful seaside resort of Bernardin located between the romantic town of Piran and the Portorož Riviera on the Adriatic coast 27-30 June 2019.

The general theme of the conference is “Migration / international legal regulation” and will thus provide a forum to address and discuss a plethora of challenging questions related to the issue of migration from both the public and private international law lens in a region largely affected by the topic.

Additionally, the conference will offer a myriad of opportunities for discussions on topics covered within the ILA Committees and Study Groups and give them space to advance their work, as well as to network with the leading international law minds from around the world.

NAFTA 2.0The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which still must be approved by the respective country legislative branches, varies markedly from its predecessor, NAFTA, in its investment, environment and labor chapters, and treatment of automotive rules of origin, financial services and regulation, dispute resolution, energy, digital trade and intellectual property. Whether approved or not, negotiating the USMCA marks a new era in North American relations and raises important questions about the future of international trade, global institutions, and regionalism. This conference will consider the NAFTA 2.0 era, not only through the specific trade provisions of the USMCA, but also from the larger puzzle of North America as a region. It will examine the North American puzzle in the context of emerging trends in international trade, shifts in geo-political and economic interests, and the growing skepticism towards globalization and international dispute settlement.

What to do about corruption allegations?

The ILA American Branch Investment Law Committee and the Georgetown International Arbitration Society invite you to an evening conference, What to do about corruption allegations? Debating the options for investment law, as part of Georgetown’s International Arbitration Month – hosted by Dechert.  The event will take place on 19 February 2019 in Washington DC at 5 pm, in the offices of Dechert.

Corruption continues to cast a shadow over investment law. When allegations of corruption arise in an investment dispute, the tribunal faces the difficult task of deciding whether to penalize the responsible party. It must assess the often-limited evidence of corruption and then craft an appropriate remedy for any positive finding. The legal questions this raises remain highly contested.  This evening conference will advance the debate, bringing together academic and non-academic perspectives, to focus on proof of corruption and then on the proper response when corruption is found.
