Presentation

#UIAArbitration

Seminar presented by the UIA in collaboration with the Bilbao Bar Association, with the support of the Consejo General de la Abogacía Española and the special support of the Civil and Commercial Court of Arbitration (CIMA) and Iberian Lawyer (press partner)

On January 25 and 26, 2019, in partnership with the Bilbao Bar Association and under the auspices of the Civil and Commercial Court of Arbitration (CIMA), the UIA is holding a seminar on highly topical current issues in the field of international arbitration.

This is the third consecutive year that this interesting seminar is to be held in Bilbao. The working sessions will be held over a day and a half at the headquarters of the local Bar Association. In addition to the high scientific level of the sessions, accredited in the previous editions, we will have the opportunity to meet with colleagues and friends during the various social events: a welcome cocktail, coffee breaks, lunches, a cultural event and an optional dinner, all of which will make this seminar an unforgettable event. Please be sure to attend!
