New York Convention Roadshow in Brasilia, Brazil

20 March 2012

The ICCA Judicial Committee held a workshop on 20 March 2012 for Brazilian judges tasked with applying the New York Convention. Judges of the Superior Court of Justice in Brasilia attended a session led by Professor Albert Jan van den Berg, which made use of the newly-published Portuguese translation of ICCA's "Guide to the Interpretation of the 1958 New York Convention". The translation is the work of five Young ICCA members: Flavia Foz Mange, Gustavo Santos Kulesza, Leandro Tripodi, Rafael Bittencourt Silva, and Rafael Vicente Soares. The workshop was followed by a meeting of members of the CBAr (Brazilian Arbitration Committee) on 22 March.
