Young ICCA Skills Training Workshop, Kuala Lumpur

Monday, 16 January 2017 in Kuala Lumpur

Topic: "Access to justice in investment arbitration: getting your funding arrangements in place"
Date: 16 January 2017
Time: 08:30 - 13:00
Venue: Sulaiman Building in Kuala Lumpur

Event synopsis: Third party funding in investment arbitration has become the "Rolls Royce" of the most sophisticated arbitration jurisdictions in Asia-Pacific, and yet, little is known on the mechanics of negotiating a funding arrangement for claimants in investment disputes. The KLRCA joins forces with YICCA to deliver an interactive workshop on negotiating funding arrangements in investment arbitration. The workshop will be hosted by the KLRCA at its magnificent venue at Sulaiman Building in Kuala Lumpur on Monday, 16 January 2017. KLRCA's Director Professor Datuk Sundra Rajoo will deliver the welcome address. Several seasoned investment practitioners from the Asia-Pacific region are invited to set out the positions of their respective jurisdictions on third party funding, and two major arbitration funders will participate at a mock funding negotiation session as part of the workshop. With CMS Hong Kong sponsoring the event, attendance at the workshop is free of charge but reserved to those who register first. 

Registration information: The workshop is open to young arbitration practitioners and students. If you wish to participate, please send your CV and expression of interest to events@klrca.org under the subject line “Young ICCA Kuala Lumpur”.
