Professor Feldman Gives Invited Lecture at SCIA

On June 30, 2016, Professor Mark Feldman, a leading scholar of international investment and treaty arbitration, was invited to meet with senior officials of the South China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission/Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration (“SCIA”) to discuss the development of SCIA and issues related to investment arbitration. Professor Feldman’s meeting with SCIA President Liu Xiaochun and Yang Tao, Director of SCIA’s Qianhai Department, was followed by a noon-time lecture to SCIA staff, during which Professor Feldman talked about jurisdiction, transparency and timing issues in the context of investment arbitrations in commercial arbitration institutions, such as SCIA.

Professor Feldman regularly is invited to present on economic law issues. He currently serves as a member of the E15 Initiative Task Force on Investment Policy and, earlier this year, he was an invited expert to the G20 International Trade and Investment Workshop in Nanjing. He also serves on the Academic Council of the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA), as a Global Associate at the National University of Singapore’s Centre for International Law, and as an arbitrator of the Shenzhen International Court of Arbitration. Professor Feldman teaches contracts, international business transactions, and international investment treaty arbitration at STL.

Professor’s Feldman’s visit to SCIA is an example of the deepening relationship between STL and SCIA. SCIA’s permanent staff includes an STL graduate and several STL students work at SCIA as interns. Like STL, the first and only law school in China to offer an American-style J.D. degree, SCIA was the first commercial arbitration institution in China to include foreign arbitrators on its panel. Today, in anticipation of playing a larger role in regional commercial dispute resolution, SCIA has enacted new rules of procedure especially accommodating of international differences and has appointed an even larger panel of multinational arbitrators.
