We will be joined by Professor Julien Chaisse and Christen Bauer, the recipients of this year's Smit-Lowenfeld Prize for best article in the field of international arbitration. They will discuss their prize-winning article “Cybersecurity and the Protection of Digital Assets: Assessing the Role of International Investment Law and Arbitration,” which was published in the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment & Technology Law (Vol. 21, No. 3) and examines the extent to which digital assets can or might be protected as investments in investment treaty arbitrations. A copy of the article is attached.
We are also pleased to announce the next presentation in the series of segments entitled, What else do you do?, which permits members with interesting lives apart from international arbitration to talk about what they do in them. We will be joined by Tai-Heng Cheng, the Global Co-Head of International Arbitration and Trade at Sidley Austin LLP, and a member of our Club, who will make a presentation on "Everything I Need for Arbitration, I Sharpened in Brazilian Jujitsu."
