Professor Pierre Mayer delivered the second LALIVE Lecture

22 May 2008

The second LALIVE lecture, co-organised and co-hosted by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (HEID) and LALIVE, was delivered on 22 May 2008 by Professor Pierre Mayer of the University of Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne). Professor Mayer, who is a highly regarded arbitrator and partner in the Paris office of Dechert LLP, reflected on the distinction between treaty claims and contract claims in State-investor arbitration, an increasingly important issue in the field of international investment disputes. The lecture was attended by close to 100 lawyers, diplomats and academics. The LALIVE lecture is named after two founding partners of the firm, Professor Pierre Lalive and Dr. Jean-Flavien Lalive. Its purpose is to explore the relationship between public and private international law, an interface that has become increasingly important in the resolution of international disputes, both private and public. The first LALIVE Lecture was delivered in July 2007 by H.E. Rosalyn Higgins, President of the International Court of Justice.
