The 2019 Annual Conference will be held in Seoul, South Korea, a thriving metropolis that mixes the traditional with the modern – from skyscrapers, high-tech subways, K-pop culture and K-beauty to Buddhist temples, palaces and street markets and a history going back 5,000 years.
This technology forward, but deeply traditional city, located between the North Asian powerhouses of Japan and China, will be an ideal location for the largest and most prestigious event for international lawyers.

International Mediation Standards – Boon or Bane?
Wednesday, September 25th 2019
11:15 to 12:30
Dr. Johannes P. Willheim, Jones Day
The design of mediation standards, an often contentious topic in individual jurisdictions, has come to the fore on the global stage in the wake of the Singapore Convention. Are international standards for cross-border or international mediations desirable? Are they feasible? This session will pit distinguished professionals, both pro and con, against one another to debate this contentious topic.
