Book Launch: "Ethics in International Arbitration" by Catherine Rogers


Ethics in International Arbitration, published by ASIL Publisher Partner Oxford University Press, comprehensively analyses issues relating to the ethics and professional conduct of participants in arbitration, in particular the role of arbitrators in international commercial and investment arbitration. It proposes a model for effective ethical self-regulation, meaning regulation of professional conduct at an international level and within existing arbitral procedures and structures.

Author Catherine Rogers is a professor of law and international affairs and a Paul and Marjorie Price Faculty Scholar at ASIL Academic Partner Penn State Law. She is also a professor of ethics, regulation, and the rule of law and co-director of the Institute for Ethics, Regulation, and Commercial Law at Queen Mary University of London. She is a reporter for the American Law Institute on the Restatement (Third) of the U.S. Law of International Commercial Arbitration and the author of a series of widely-cited articles about the need for clearer ethical regulation in international arbitration. These works have been published over the past decade and have played an influential role in various law reform efforts. Today Rogers teaches and lectures throughout the world on issues of international arbitration, ethics, and globalization of the legal profession.

Following Rogers’ presentation of her book, four leading experts and scholars - Catherine Amirfar, Charles Brower, John Crook, and Horacio Naón - will discuss current ethical issues in international arbitration, examining issues of counsel ethics and arbitrator ethics, as outlined in the book. Copies of Ethics in International Arbitration will be available for purchase.

This event is sponsored by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes and co-sponsored by ASIL.
