Lis Pendens in International Litigation

Part of the Herbert Smith Private International Law Seminar Series

27th October 2009

What is this event about?

The question of international lis pendens has long been controversial, but has taken on new and urgent importance in our age. Globalization has driven an unprecedented rise in forum shopping between national courts, but also the proliferation of new international tribunals has brought with it new challenges of interaction in today's fragmented international legal system. The response to these challenges also has profound theoretical implications for the interaction of legal systems in today's pluralistic world. This seminar will analyse the problems of parallel litigation across the landscape of international litigation - from private international litigation, through international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration, to public international law.

CPD hours may be claimed by both solicitors and barristers through attendance at this event.
