Arbitration Happy Hour

Arbitration Happy Hour is a monthly virtual (or hybrid) get-together launched by Svenja Wachtel and Sneha Ashtikar.

  • The concept is easy: One or more speaker talking to us (Sneha Ashtikar and I) about a topic in international arbitration
  • Frequency – Monthly
  • Where – Live session on Zoom with interactive Q&A, and we will make a podcast (no video) out of it. So, if you cannot join for the live session, you can still listen to it whenever you like
  • AHH Meetups: three or four times a year we will actually meet in a city, host a live #ArbitrationHappyHour and will meet for drinks

Follow us on LinkedIn or find further announcements here.

See you at the next AHH soon!
