Perspectives—to record the oral histories of the leading and
most influential arbitrators in the world to provide a record for
the future about the evolution of modern international arbitration.
The Washington College of Law (WCL) and our Internationally recognized Center on International Commercial Arbitration are delighted to partner with the ITA and offer the first of its kind programming in the United States, namely a forum for a series of interviews with the world’s most prestigious international arbitrators.
