On behalf of Professor Dr. Gerhard Wagner, the Academic Director of the International Dispute Resolution (IDR) LL.M., and the now six generations of IDR LL.M. Alumni, we are delighted to invite you to the inaugural Humboldt Dispute Resolution Conference at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin!
The programme of the Humboldt Dispute Resolution Conference is a showcase of subjects currently at the vanguard of discussion, debate and development within the international dispute resolution community. This intellectual feast is delivered by up-and-coming dispute resolution practitioners who, after graduating with their IDR LL.M. degrees from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, have charted success and pursued careers within private practice, in-house, academia and arbitral institutions across the globe. We invite you to join us as we learn about some of today’s hot topics in commercial and investment arbitration.
The Humboldt Dispute Resolution Conference is co-organized by the newly established Humboldt International Dispute Resolution Association e.V.
The Humboldt Dispute Resolution Conference is part of the Berlin Dispute Resolution Days and is open to dispute resolution practitioners, in-house counsel, academics, as well as students to attend.
