Grand Hyatt Washington
April 22, 2013, Washington, D.C.
The Seventh Annual Juris Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference will address the complex issues raised by investor-state arbitration in the energy sector. The interface between investment treaty arbitration and the energy sector is readily apparent: almost one third of all investor-state arbitrations commenced in 2012 alone arose out of disputes in the energy sector. Energy related regulatory action is likely further to increase rather than decrease with debates about the merits of hydraulic fracturing, nuclear energy, and deep-sea drilling continuing to take center stage in political debates in North America, Europe and beyond.

At the conference, expert panels debate controversial issues in investment treaty arbitration, grounding their discussions in papers written by up and coming lawyers.
Sabrina is delighted to be presenting a paper on “Energy Contracts and BITs – Is it Fair and Equitable to be under the Umbrella?”
The proceedings of the conference will be published in Investment Treaty Arbitration and International Law, Volume 7, Todd Weiler & Ian A. Laird, Editors.
