The Implications of Chevron v. Ecuador for Investor-State Arbitration
On Monday, October 24, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion at NYU on the The Implications of Chevron v. Ecuador for Investor-State Arbitration. The event will be held at 6 p.m. at Furman Hall 900, 245 Sullivan Street, New York. The event is sponsored by NYU Law School’s Institute for International Law and Justice.
Topics will include: Do arbitrators have the power to give Chevron what it wants? Are there any limits left on U.S. discovery in aid of arbitration? What will the endgame look like, and will it advance human rights?
