The key industry event hosted in the home of international arbitration connecting a diverse and dynamic professional community.
Paris truly is the home of international arbitration.
The unique combination of institutional tradition, academic and legal avant-gardism and strategic geographic positioning makes Paris the preferred arbitration seat worldwide to local and foreign parties alike. It has also made Paris home to the largest and most diverse community of arbitration practitioners and service providers worldwide.
At the same time, international arbitration has become part of the Paris DNA and a vibrant testimony to Paris’ historic role as one of the globe’s most important centers for the development of international affairs.
Paris Arbitration Week celebrates this by bringing together the international arbitration community during a dynamic week of academic debate and professional exchange in a friendly atmosphere in the beauty of the City of Lights. With over 35 official professional and academic events, two official social gatherings accessible to all public and over 1000 participants from all over the world, the week is designed to facilitate maximum participation and provide optimal value to those taking part in it.
