Karatzas & Partners Law Firm is proud to be a golden sponsor of this year’s ELSA Athens’ Summer School on International Investment Law.
ELSA Athens Summer ELSA Law School gives its participants the ticket to explore an intriguing field of law, along with their own interests. The International Investment Law is currently one of the most popular fields of international law, given the rapid increase of international investment disputes over the past few year, as well as the theoretical and practical problems arising from possible “overlaps” with other fields of international and EU law. ELSA Athens Summer ELSA Law School addresses a variety of subjects related to international investment arbitration, ranging from investors’ Standards of Treatment and Host States’ Defences to the implications of umbrella and denial of benefit clauses.
The first day of lectures started with Mr. Anastasios Gourgourinis, Academic Supervisor of the ELSA Athens Summer Law School on International Investment Law, Lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the NKUA (Athens, Greece) and Member of Athens PIL. Mr. Gourgourinis provided a thorough insight into the issue of sources of International Investment Law and consent to International Investment Arbitration.
The second day of lectures started with Dr. Michail Risvas, Assistant Professor of Public International Law at IE University (Madrid) and Mr. Dimitrios Katsikis, Associate at Shearman & Sterling (Paris), who gave a very interesting and interactive lecture on non-discrimination in International Investment Law.
