Season 3 Episode 11 - Those Who Can’t Do, Teach (and those who can they also teach)

Back from a one-week hiatus, we take on two substantive topics: sovereign immunity (from enforcement) [TIME 14:39] and tribunals’ powers to reconsider decisions made during the course of the arbitration [TIME 40:41]. The final segment is HFT, in which we discuss the peculiarities of teaching international arbitration [TIME 58:35].

Episode 16 - The Holiday Gifts

Happy holidays fellow arbitration nerds! This week's episode focuses on holiday gifts.

If so, you might enjoy our discussions about this topic, from both the commercial and treaty-based perspective. If not, we have other gifts for you - Happy Fun Time this week is a list of suggested holiday gifts.
