Welcome to the 2022 Harvard International Arbitration Conference

HIALSA is excited to announce that the 8th Harvard International Arbitration Conference will be held virtually from March 31st to April 1st, 2022.

The HIAC is an annual conference hosted and organized by the Harvard International Arbitration Law Students Association (HIALSA). Harvard Law School has a vibrant and growing community of students and academics interested in international arbitration. Every year, the HIAC is a point of reference to arbitration practitioners around the world and widely regarded as one of the most important arbitration conferences in the United States. For the 8th HIAC, HIALSA has opted to focus on a conference title that is emblematic of arbitration’s international nature: “Clash of cultures? Civil & Common Law traditions in international arbitration.”

This year’s Conference will be held virtually due to the peculiarities of the world today, but just as in the past, it will consist of keynote speeches and panel discussions featuring prominent scholars and practitioners around the globe. Indeed, the virtual forum allows us to reach speakers and audience who otherwise would not have been able to attend in person.

You can download the full brochure here and register for the conference here.

We greatly look forward to seeing you in our Conference!
