A Supreme Court Moot: BG Group PLC v. Republic of Argentina
When: Tuesday, November 19, 5-7pm
Where: Ames Courtroom
Tom Goldstein of Goldstein & Russell will be mooting BG Group v. Argentina at Harvard in preparation for oral arguments before the Supreme Court early next month. Professors Richard Lazarus and Gabriella Blum will be on the panel of “justices,” along with Mark Fleming, partner at WilmerHale in Boston. BG Group v. Argentina concerns the DC Circuit’s independent review of an investment arbitration panel’s decision on the arbitrability of a dispute. The case is expected to weigh in on who decides arbitrability–the judge or the arbitrator–especially when enforcing arbitral awards. Please be advised that the moot will be confidential and that no electronic devices will be allowed. This event is sponsored by the American Constitution Society, the Federalist Society, and Law Review.
