International Arbitration Seminar in Dubai a Success

The International Arbitration course, that I co-taught with Professor Dr Klaus Peter Berger from Germany was  a great success!  Thirty participants from several disciplines had hands-on experience at dealing with the complexities of an International Arbitration hearing.  Here is just one of the excellent Tribunals that we drew from the participants, listening to other participants playing the part of arbitration counsel.

You can participate next year.  It will be about the same time (late September ) in 2012. 

Thanks to Dr. Berger and, of course, to Director Nassib Ziadé and the entire staff of the Dubai International Arbitration Centre for the great support. 

Remember, a sea elephant is not an elephant! (To find out why, you have to attend the seminar!)

Across the street from me is the Dubai International Finanical Centre (DIFC).  It has a host of art galleries.  It is interesting to see that side of Dubai.  Please click on the images to better see them.

A whimsical piece, a small truck loaded with all manner of household goods. It had Lebanese plates.

Banks

There are over 50 different banks in the UAE, with nearly 1000 branches.  We love to hate them all.  Service is incredibly bad at all of them, and they offer few services for the service charges deducted.  (RAK Bank seems to get a better rap than most).   So I saw the following on the Internet (http://taitegallery.net/2010/06/banks.html ) and adapted it slightly to fit the locale.

3. Did I mention the air conditioning?

But I’m not scared.

Little creatures have invaded Dubai International Financial Centre.  About 100 of them.

Most are in plexi cases, so I am not worried.

This is the event; click here to see more.
