October 30, 2018

Foley Hoag LLP counsel M. Arsalan Suleman will be a featured panelist for “International Dispute Settlement in the Trump Era,” to be held in Washington, D.C. on October 31, 2018. The event is co-organized by The International Arbitration Student Association and International Law Society of The George Washington University (GW) Law School.

Suleman will speak on the Trump administration’s approach to diplomacy and its impact on dispute settlement. He and his fellow panelists will focus on such topics as the Investment Arbitration Chapter of NAFTA 2.0 (USMCA), the rise of extra-territorial regulations in an era of diminishing multilateral agreements, the effects of the Section 232 Steel and Aluminum Tariffs on the WTO, and the state of diplomatic dispute settlement under Trump. 

Suleman is a member of Foley Hoag's International Litigation & Arbitration Practice. He primarily advises sovereign States and State-owned companies in North Africa, the Middle East, and Central, South and Southeast Asia. 

GW’s International Arbitration Student Association provides a forum for students to engage with current issues, think critically about the role of arbitration in international dispute settlement, and learn more about the field in general. 

The International Law Society (ILS) is one of the largest and most active student organizations at GW law school. It hosts an annual International Law Week, offering professional and social activities, a career fair, speakers and panel discussions.
