The University of Missouri School of Law has put out a call for papers and proposals in connection with the annual symposium hosted by the award-winning Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution. This year’s symposium is international in scope and is entitled “Border Skirmishes: The Intersection Between Litigation and International Commercial Arbitration.” The conference features world-renowned author, arbitrator and advocate Gary Born as keynote speaker as well as expert panelists from Canada, Austria, Switzerland and the United States. The symposium will be held on October 21, 2011, with papers to be published in the Journal of Dispute Resolution.
The call (Download Call - combined (2)) relates to two events that are being organized in connection with this year’s symposium:
• A works-in-progress conference for academics to be held on October 20, 2011, the day prior to the symposium itself (proposals due May 20, 2011); and
• A student writing competition with a $300 prize sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) North American Branch (papers due August 15, 2011).
