On Friday, May 11 Tim Feighery will speak on a panel titled “State Representation in International Arbitration and Matters of Public International Law.” This panel will discuss the difficulties that are generally encountered while providing advice to States in international matters or while representing States before international tribunals, and practical ways to address those challenges.
