Two days are enough to welcome about 40 speakers from over eight different countries and over 470 participants. A meeting that turns São Paulo into the international capital of arbitration for 48 hours, bringing together some of the industry’s leading experts to discuss solutions and challenges. Registration for the 6th CAM-CCBC Arbitration Congress is open, with special prices.
The opening panel of the Congress will be by Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler, emeritus professor at the University of Geneva School of Law. Considered one of the world’s top 10 arbitrators, according to the university, in 2016 Gabrielle was named by a study by the Global Arbitration Review as the most influential arbitrator in the world.
Speakers at the event include Stefan Kröll, one of Germany’s leading experts in international arbitration and 7-year director of Willem C. Vis Arbitration Moot in Vienna, Austria – the largest student competition in the fields of arbitration and international trade law, with over 300 universities represented. CAM-CCBC is the main supporter of the Brazilian teams in the dispute.
Another speaker will be Brazilian Maria Claudia Procopiak, who is part of the London branch of the global office Dechert LLP. The lawyer was recognized by Latinvex publication as one of the 50 “rising stars” among law firms operating in Latin America.
The sixth edition of the Congress will bring forth topics such as transparency, data protection, artificial intelligence and foreign investment. To check the schedule already confirmed and make your registration, visit: https://www.congressocamccbc.org.br/.
São Paulo Arbitration Week: simultaneous schedule
The São Paulo Arbitration Week (SPAW) arose around the CAM-CCBC Arbitration Congress – the largest in the country’s industry. The collective agenda was created to bring together all the events organized parallel to the Congress. Last year SPAW brought together nearly 20 initiatives related to the theme and the expectation this year is that the amount will be even higher. To check the confirmed events, visit: https://www.sparbitrationweek.com.br/.
Both Congress and SPAW events respect CAM-CCBC’s commitment to female representation. In February of last year, the institution officially undertook to include at least 30% of women among speakers, debaters or exhibitors at academic events it organizes, supports or sponsors.
