Club Meeting - June, 2024 - Reconceptualizing the Party-Appointed Arbitrator and the Meaning of Impartiality & David Martkowski, What Else Do You Do?

Thursday, June 20, 2024 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Event Location: Baker McKenzie & Zoom

Catherine Rogers, Professor at Bocconi University, a world recognized authority on ethics in international arbitration and one of the reporters for the Restatement of International Commercial and Investment Arbitration, will lead a discussion based on her recent article, “Reconceptualizing the Party-Appointed Arbitrator and the Meaning of Impartiality.”

Our second speaker will be our fellow member, David Martkowski, in our series, “What Else Do You Do?" on other lives of our members apart from their involvement in international arbitration. David, a distinguished maritime arbitrator, will talk to us about his early career as a “narc” for the Drug Enforcement Administration including tales of scheduled drug “busts and buys,” and related activities in parts of New York City seldom frequented by member(s) of this Club, at least for the same purpose.
