The International Arbitration Committee focuses on all aspects of administered and non-administered international arbitration, ranging from the agreement to arbitrate, constitution of the arbitral tribunal, arbitrator disclosures and other duties, preliminary measures, arbitration procedure, submission of evidence, merits hearings, final award, and post award matters including judicial enforcement of awards. The Committee's recent initiatives include:
- Preparation of a report and recommendation on arbitration-related legislation pending before the United States Congress;
- Review of proposed changes to ABA Model Rules of Professional Ethics 8.5 with respect to counsel obligations in international arbitration outside the U.S.;
- Comment on proposed ethical guidelines for experts; and
- Review of issues relating to implementation of the Hague Convention on Choice of Courts Agreements.
The committee sponsors many excellent programs at the Section's meetings and hosts an educational and participatory monthly conference call. Publication and speaking opportunities are also offered through the committee. We invite your suggestions for committee projects and your involvement in our activities.

Seventh Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference, Washington, D.C. -- Monday, April 22, 2013
The Seventh Annual Juris Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference will address the complex issues raised by investor-state arbitration in the energy sector. The interface between investment treaty arbitration and the energy sector is readily apparent: almost one third of all investor-state arbitrations commenced in 2012 alone arose out of disputes in the energy sector. Energy related regulatory action is likely further to increase rather than decrease with debates about the merits of hydraulic fracturing, nuclear energy, and deep-sea drilling continuing to take center stage in political debates in North America, Europe and beyond.
