Miriam Harwood Speaks on Evidentiary Issues in International Arbitration at American University's 6th Annual Seminar on International Commercial Arbitration
Speakers: Miriam K. Harwood

Miriam Harwood and Claudia Frutos-Peterson participated in American University’s 6th Annual Seminar on International Commercial Arbitration October 13 – 16 in Washington, D.C.

The four-day intensive seminar, which was based on a mock arbitration case, provided critical skills and practical insight into handling BIT arbitration cases primarily under the auspices of ICSID. Through dynamic interactive lectures and scenario-based exercises, participants had the opportunity to work in small groups in constant debate with international experts and were taught skills, strategies and tactics for successfully conducting a BIT arbitration.

In her October 13 program, Ms. Frutos-Peterson discussed “Preliminary Steps in ICSID Arbitration.”  Ms. Harwood’s presentation took place on October 15 and explored “Evidentiary issues in International Arbitration.”
