Sustaining a successful career in international arbitration presents a number of challenges. Join ArbitralWomen and LexisNexis for a panel discussion in which our speakers will engage in a candid discussion as to whether it is possible to “have it all” and how to manage and balance competing and sometimes incompatible demands of life, such as marriage and parenthood, and performance as an advocate, legal consultant, or arbitrator.

They will discuss these delicate issues and will answer questions submitted by the audience from the perspective of: a founder and senior partner of the largest law firm in the Middle East; arbitration partners supervising a team of associates; renowned arbitrators; a former private practice international arbitration practitioner; a striving associate; an “arbitral mother” and an “arbitral father”.

Event is free of charge. Prior registration required; limited space.
