New Guide for Judges in Expanding Area of International Arbitration-US Courts

A new guide on international commercial arbitration (pdf) written for U.S. federal judges is now available online. In less than 100 pages, it offers a practical overview of a complicated area of law that has become the preferred means of resolving cross-border business disputes.

Stacie Strong, a 2012-2013 Supreme Court Fellow working with the Federal Judicial Center, wrote the guide prior to beginning her fellowship year. Strong brought her unique background to the topic; she is not only a law professor at theUniversity of Missouri, she also has practiced international commercial arbitration for a number of years in the U.S. and in England, and is dual-qualified as a U.S. lawyer and an English solicitor.

“Cybercrime and Cyberlaw – What Every Lawyer Should Know”
Monday, August 26, 2013
10:00 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.
Mohawk Golf Club, Schenectady, New York
Recent developments and revelations in the news have highlighted the threats posed to American Businesses from a range of cyber-dangers – from data spills to state-sponsored economic espionage. Yet beyond attention grabbing headlines there is scant analysis to put this problem in context and to provide concrete analysis and solutions to these seemingly amorphous issues. Every company holds data. And every company uses computers.(Even law firms!) But what are the key laws and regulations that every lawyer should be aware of to protect their clients and their Firms.
These topics will be evaluated by Joseph V. DeMarco of the law firm of DeVore DeMarco, LLP. Drawing on his experience in private practice and as the founder and head of the Cybercrime Unit at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York from 1997-2007. Mr. DeMarco will address in a clear and non-technical manner:
Recent developments and revelations in the area of data spills, computer hacking, and cyber-espionage;
Key criminal and civil laws that apply to these phenomena;
What to do – and not to do — in the face of new and evolving cyber-threats to businesses, their systems, and their IP;
The impact of the President Obama’s recent Cybersecurity Executive Order on American business; and
How leading businesses address these threats, and what you and your clients can learn from them.
