Please join the Columbia International Arbitration Association (CIAA) for a lunchtime discussion on cybersecurity threats in international arbitration and their rapidly evolving role in informing international law.  The discussion will address both procedural and substantive considerations arising from cybersecurity threats, including the admissibility of hacked evidence and questions of attribution of conduct.  Presenting will be Hugh Carlson, Director of Practice and a senior associate at Three Crowns LLP, and Kabir Duggal, a senior associate at Baker & McKenzie and lecturer-in-law at CLS.

Hugh is Director of Practice and a senior associate at Three Crowns LLP, a specialist firm in international arbitration, where he serves in a leadership role and practices international commercial and investment arbitration.  He has represented clients under most major arbitral rules systems.  He is an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law School and the co-director of the International Arbitration Workshop at Harvard Law School.  He was selected as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers in 2016 and 2017.

Kabir Duggal is a senior associate in the Baker McKenzie's International Arbitration Practice Group in New York focusing on international investment arbitration, international commercial arbitration, and public international law matters. Mr. Duggal is a Lecturer-in-Law at the Columbia Law School, teaching "International Investment Law and Arbitration" and is the Managing Editor of Columbia Law School’s “The American Review of International Arbitration.”  Mr. Duggal also sits as an arbitrator and mediator.

A non-pizza lunch will be provided.
