Preparing for third-party settlement of boundary and sovereignty disputes

Professional Training Workshop

March dates cancelled NEW 2020 DATE COMING SOON

Washington DC, USA

in partnership with Foley Hoag

Although it is widely recognised that boundary disputes are best settled through negotiation, there are times when recourse to third party settlement also needs to be considered as an option. This workshop is designed to help governments and their legal advisors evaluate the benefits and disadvantages of third party adjudication, and to equip them with information and skills to ensure a successful outcome from the process.

Led by highly experienced international lawyers and boundary practitioners, the workshop will offer practical instruction on topics such as: choice of forum; assembling and assessing evidence; building and managing a team; presenting your case and rebutting your opponent’s case.

The workshop, organised in partnership with leading international law firm Foley Hoag, will be of value not only to countries currently involved in boundary litigation or arbitration but also to any country seeking to achieve a peaceful boundary settlement with its neighbours.

The cost of the workshop will be £1,900 per participant

This fee does not include accommodation.
