Hot Topics in International Adjudication


On October 6, 2016, from 6 to 9 pm, ASIL's International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group (ICTIG) and the University of Baltimore School of Law's Center for International and Comparative Law will cosponsor an evening devoted to exploring "Hot Topics in International Adjudication." The event will take place at the University of Baltimore School of Law, conveniently located across the street from Baltimore's Penn Station, which serves both MARC and Amtrak trains from DC and Philadelphia.

The program will begin with a panel examining controversies in the selection of international judges and arbitrators on different international adjudicative bodies, including the World Trade Organization’s Appellate Body, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and in investor-state disputes, such as those convened under the auspices of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes. Panelists include, Chiara Giorgetti, associate professor of law, University of Richmond School of Law; Juan A. Millán, assistant U.S. trade representative for monitoring & enforcement (acting), Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; and Alpha Sesay, advocacy officer, Open Society Justice Initiative. Nienke Grossman, associate professor, University of Baltimore School of Law and ICTIG Co-Chair, will moderate.

Following a brief reception, Sean D. Murphy, International Law Commission member and Patricia Roberts Harris research professor of law of George Washington University Law School, will deliver the University of Baltimore's Annual John Sumner Stead Lecture on “A Rocky Road: The Philippines v. China Arbitration Concerning the South China Sea."
