The 14th Annual Investment Treaty Arbitration Conference, a four-session web conference hosted by JURIS Conferences, will tackle four questions of systemic reform currently under consideration in various fora. Following a true or false format, authors and panelists will consider a range of subjects, including, for example, whether the revised investment chapter in the new NAFTA represents a paradigmatic shift for the US government to proposed prescriptions on double-hatting and security-for-costs orders.
Partner Danielle Morris will speak during Session II—True or False: The Time has Come to Outlaw Double-Hatting? The topic will be the contentious issue of so-called double hatting in international investment arbitration. Following a brief presentation of two papers taking opposite positions, which will be provided to all participants, the panelists will participate in a roundtable discussion of the papers and the significant issues the issue poses for the future practice of international investment arbitration.
