23 May 2012


On 23 May 2012, LALIVE, together with the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (HEID), hosted the sixth Lalive lecture in Geneva. This year’s lecture was delivered by Prof. Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel, Emeritus Professor of International Business Law at the University of Cologne, Chairman of the German Arbitration Institution (DIS), Past President of the International Law Association (ILA) and Past President of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). Professor Böckstiegel’s lecture was entitled “Commercial and Investment Arbitration: How Different are they Today?” The lecture will be followed by a cocktail reception at Barton’s Parc Restaurant.

The purpose of the lecture series, which commenced in 2007 with H. E. Judge Rosalyn Higgins, President of the International Court of Justice, is to create a forum for intellectual discussion on recent developments in the interface between public and private international law. The series is named in honour of Me Jean-Flavien Lalive and Professor Pierre Lalive, founders of the firm, who have dedicated their professional and academic careers to the interaction between these two fields.
