Why Attend? The Latin and Central American region is home to some of the world’s most important emerging markets and is a key trading partner to Canada and the United States. It is also a quickly evolving region as the political landscape shifts, and Miami is quickly establishing itself as the crossroads of the Americas. The time is now for leading experts and interested legal professionals to cultivate the professional understanding and discourse of the legal framework and issues that are relevant to the region. Program highlights include practical discussions of key issues in different sectors of practice in the Americas as well as ample networking opportunities.
Agenda: This dynamic Forum will highlight distinguished speakers discussing issues of importance to the Latin and Central American region, including a Corporate Counsel roundtable, the state of arbitration in the Americas, Investor-State disputes in the region, professional ethics in the Americas, complex cross border litigation issues that can arise from a cross border practice in the Americas, politics and M&A, private equity and venture capital, CAFTA, NAFTA, and the TPP, and energy and natural resources.
Section of International Law 2016 Spring Meeting
Location: Grand Hyatt New York
109 E 42nd St Park Avenue/Grand Central
New York, NY 10017-5698
Date: April 12-16, 2016
For three days in April 2016, nearly 1,500 lawyers, judges, law professors, law students and representatives of governments and NGOs from around the world will meet in New York City to teach, learn, discuss, network, socialize and experience the “City That Never Sleeps!” Famous places like Wall Street, Broadway, Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, 42nd Street, Times Square and Central Park epitomize what the “Crossroads of the World” offers: New York City is not only the financial center of the world and home to the United Nations, but also is an exciting and diverse smorgasbord of history, world politics, business, law, art, architecture, music, theatre, food, fashion and sports. That is why, for hundreds of years, New York City has attracted people from around the world. And, in light of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor is still a poignant symbol of humans “yearning to breathe free.” All of these aspects will be reflected in the programming, making New York City the perfect host city for a successful and memorable Spring Meeting!
