Atkin Chambers is delighted to be a Supporter of London International Disputes Week (LIDW21)
Running from 10-14 May 2021, London International Disputes Week 2021 (LIDW21) will, through a programme of virtual sessions, provide attendees with the opportunity to hear leading experts discuss and debate the ever-changing landscape of international dispute resolution.
The programme for 2021 will draw on current global issues facing the sector. Themes include: the role of London in a decentralised world, digital advocacy, social and environmental responsibility and issues, the mental health challenges faced in the legal profession and the role of technology. Using London’s position as a major international seat for the dispute resolution business, LIDW21 will engage with international perspectives across all sectors and explore how the industry can adapt, evolve and progress. LIDW21 builds on the success of its inaugural year in 2019. LIDW strives to be forward-thinking and inclusive, demonstrating legal London’s commitment to diversity. London holds international appeal as a global centre for dispute resolution – whether through its courts or by arbitration, mediation, expert determination or negotiation – built upon a rich tradition of English law dating back to the Magna Carta.
