THIS IS THE ALT ALT TAG

OBA Class Actions / International Law PROGRAM | 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM

The increasing frequency of globalization of class actions proceedings is generating complex questions with serious consequences for your clients. As well, global class actions are infiltrating Investor-State Dispute Settlement arbitration practices, potentially opening the door to allow class-like relief to investors under myriad investor-state dispute settlement mechanisms. These developments are raising serious uncertainties for Canadian counsel and investors as to whether class arbitration under Canada’s Bilateral Investment Treaties is a viable practice.

Join our stellar faculty to understand how courts are dealing with global class actions proceedings and to discuss the impact of recent decisions with significant international law dimensions. Register now to gain the insights you need to help your clients obtain the best outcome.
