5th KCL TTIPills Lecture Series Event 2017-2018


The importance of the decision of the European Court of Justice in Achmea can hardly be overestimated. Only a few months after 6 March, its effects are already deeply affecting the arbitration community, with final awards being challenged before national courts and private investors withdrawing from impending arbitral proceedings.

Resorting to the very broad concept of “autonomy” of its legal order, the ECJ has seemingly put an end to the longstanding quarrel between the Commission and its Member States on the compatibility of (intra EU?) Bilateral Investment Treaties and their dispute settlement mechanisms with EU law. 

What are these incompatibilities? And can they be overcome? 

During the last KCL LAwTTIPill event for 2018/2019, Carmen Martinez Lopez, Partner at Three Crowns LLP, will guide us through these and other issues relating to the intertwinement between EU law and investment arbitration from a practitioner’s standpoint.

Join us on 3 July 2018, h. 16.00 at the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London, Moot Court.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.

All welcome RSVPat this Link.
