On Thursday, November 5, Partner Mélida Hodgson will discuss the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) at a webinar hosted by the American Bar Association (ABA). The webinar is the first in a series of webinars hosted by the ABA that will focus on one specific international arbitration institution. Ms. Hodgson and the panelists will go beyond the rules of the ICDR that arbitrators are already familiar with and offer insight into the unwritten aspects of arbitration at the ICDR. Topics covered by the panelists will include the selection and performance of arbitrators, the question of party autonomy and flexibility of the rules, third-party funding, and ICDR’s attitude towards handling and supporting virtual hearings. The program begins at 9:00 am EDT and is eligible for CLE credit.

Ms. Hodgson is head of the firm’s New York International Arbitration Practice. She focuses her practice on investor-state and commercial arbitrations, counselling governments and state-owned entities, as well as corporate entities, with respect to international investment protection provisions, business disputes, and World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute resolution and international trade policy issues.
