The Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law is glad to be able to announce that it will host an arbitration seminar together with ADA University School of Law. The event, titled “International Arbitration in a Globalized World: Challenges to Fundamental Concepts and Perspectives,” will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan, on February 15th, 2024.

The event is part of a series of seminars hosted by the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law in different countries together with institutions operating in those countries. The events are intended to bring together academics, practitioners, and arbitrators to examine certain fundamental features of international arbitration to determine whether the role attributed to them corresponds to reality and is justified from a theoretical perspective, and, to the extent that this is not the case, how they should be reconsidered, taking into account modern arbitration practice and the expectations of various stakeholders, such as the parties, the arbitrators, the public at large, and the arbitral institutions.

Opening remarks will be given by Dr. Fariz Ismailzade (Vice Rector, ADA University), Dr. Rashad Ibadov (Founding Dean, ADA University School of Law) and Hon Kamala Abiyeva (Chair of the Commercial Chamber of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Azerbaijan), and Prof. Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Director.

The event will feature Prof. Franco Ferrari, Toghrul Guluzade (Adjunct Lecturer, ADA University, Member of London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), Head of Legal Department “Azerbaijan Industrial Corporation” OJSC), Prof. Kamalia Mehtiyeva (Université Paris-Est Créteil, President of Azerbaijan Arbitration Association), and Domenico Di Pietro (Independent Arbitrator) as speakers and commentators.

Shirin Gurdova, Dr. Aygun Mammadzada, Shahlar Mammadov, and Kamil Valiyev will act as discussants.
