We are re-launching our brown bag series! Check out our first session:

International commercial arbitration one-year post-COVID: What have we learned, and what can we expect post-pandemic?, March 17, 2021.

Myriam Seers and Christopher Petrucci will discuss how COVID-19 has changed the conduct of international commercial arbitrations, share practice tips and insights, and consider what changes may remain in place post-pandemic. Register Now!

Advocacy highlights

The Section has been busy with a variety of advocacy projects including participating in the CBA working group responding to Global Affairs Canada’s consultation on a potential free trade agreement with Indonesia. In addition, Section representatives on the CBA Anti-Corruption Team are helping to develop best practices for internal investigations of white-collar crimes. Finally, the Section’s working group on the Business and Human Rights Toolkit is moving towards completing the toolkit and preparing for its publication and launch this summer.

Participate in our upcoming meetings with the Government of Canada

We are working to set up virtual meetings with the federal government this spring and summer. Our first meeting is with the Trade Law Bureau (GAC) on April 15, 2021. Register now!

This year’s meetings will aim to cover such topics as sanctions, current litigation and treaty negotiations, trade remedies, trade protections and human rights. If you are interested in participating in any of the Section’s upcoming meetings with government via Zoom video conference, please contact us and express your interest.

The details of each meeting will be announced on our Section listservs and posted to the CBA International Law LinkedIn page once confirmed. Learn about our meetings with government from last year!
