Ceremonial Moot Court Room, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, 500 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201
The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law's Journal of Business & Technology Law and C-DRUM (Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland School of Law) are co-sponsoring a symposium titled, "Business Arbitration: Redefining the Landscape of Efficient Business Practices." The Symposium is also being sponsored in part by Proskauer Rose LLP. The event will be open to the students, lawyers, and scholars, including those from Baltimore, the Washington metro area, and out of town.
The panel discussions will be held in the Ceremonial Moot Court Room, and a keynote lunch will be provided in the Krongard Board Room. The symposium will have three segments: a morning panel, a keynote lunch, and an afternoon panel. Each panel will have an introduction speaker, who will also act as moderator for the remainder of the discussion. Each panelist will provide a 10-15 minute presentation, and there will be time reserved for question and answer.
Speakers will present on a range of topics related to arbitration in the modern business world, and our speakers include active neutrals, forward thinkers, and professors. We are proud to present our currently committed speakers:
A video of the symposium is posted below in two parts.
