Rogers to speak at International Energy Arbitration Conference

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Professor Catherine A. Rogers, the Paul and Marjorie Price Faculty Scholar ​at Penn State Law, will kick off the 4th ITA-IEL-ICC Joint Conference on International Energy Arbitration on Jan. 12 in Houston.

Presented by The Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA), The Institute for Energy Law (IEL) of The Center for American and International Law, and The ICC International Court of Arbitration, the annual two-day conference presents a review of the year past and the year ahead in the arbitration of international disputes in the energy industry.

Rogers, one of the world’s leading scholars of ethics in international arbitration, will open the conference with a review of recurring ethical issues in international dispute resolution and will moderate a panel debating the ethical implications arising out of various real-world scenarios faced by arbitrators, counsel, and experts. As Rogers says, “Given the range of trenchant ethical issues that remain uncertain as a result of international arbitration’s cultural diversity, these kinds of interactive cross-cultural discussions are an important resource for the arbitration community.”

On the conference’s second day, as the most recent installment in the ITA’s Academic Council’s Arbitrator Oral History Project, Rogers will conduct an on-stage interview during the luncheon with William (Rusty) W. Park, past president of the London Court of International Arbitration, general editor of Arbitration International, and the R. Gordon Butler Scholar in International Law at Boston University School of Law.

In addition to her position at Penn State Law, Rogers serves as professor of ethics, regulation & the rule of law and director of the Institute for Ethics, Regulation & the Rule of Law at Queen Mary University of London. She is a reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the Law, the U.S. Law of International Commercial Arbitration, and is frequent speaker at major international arbitration conferences. Rogers is the founder of Arbitrator Intelligence, an NGO that aims to increase fairness, transparency and accountability in the arbitrator selection process, and increased diversity in arbitrator appointments.
