On May 26-27, 2021, the ABA International Law Section will present the inaugural International Litigation Skills Conference, focusing on both the core “nuts and bolts” issues addressing necessary skills and methods, as well as new and developing issues.
The conference will offer a two-track approach. Attorneys new to international litigation will get an overview of the process from start to finish. Those seeking more in-depth discussion in specific areas will have the opportunity to interact on developing issues of note.
Kristin Drecktrah Paz, an International Arbitration and Litigation partner in Shutts & Bowen’s Miami office, will present during the second day of the conference as a panelist during the “Personal Jurisdiction, Choice of Law and Forum non Conveniens in the Age of Remote Practice” Master Class. With remote practice likely to continue in varying degrees, the panel will discuss the impact of remote practice on traditional practice in terms of territoriality and due process.
