Welcome from Dean Schizer
Dear Prospective Conference Participant,
It is my pleasure to invite you to the fourth annual Columbia Arbitration Day on March 8, 2013. We are very pleased to host several leading practitioners in the field of international arbitration, faculty, students and alumni for a day-long conference. We are gratified by the increased popularity and recognition of the conference among practitioners, scholars and students from all over the world. This effort arises from our recognition of the common interests of participants in this field, and our belief that we can offer a valuable and unique service by bringing these diverse groups together. We recognize the importance of creating connections between different cultures and nations in the field of international dispute resolution and our hope is that the conference will encourage solutions to some of the prominent and difficult issues this field faces today.
We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity, and we look forward to welcoming you to Columbia Law School.
