(The following announcement comes to us from the National Law School of India Review)

The National
Law School of India Review (NLSIR)
 the flagship journal of the National Law School of India
University (NLSIU), Bangalore is
pleased to announce the VIth
NLSIR Symposium on “Mapping the Future of Commercial
Arbitration in India

scheduled to be held on May 18 and
19, 2013
 at the NLSIU campus. The
last three years have witnessed dynamic shifts in the law and practice of
Arbitration in India. While there have been steps in the right direction, an
unwieldy system continues to weigh down practitioners. Four years after first
delving into the nuances of commercial arbitration in India, the Symposium
hopes to assess the development of Arbitration law over the last few years.

(Former Justice, Bombay High Court), Mr. Anirudh Krishnan (Advocate, Madras
High Court), Mr. Ashwin Shanker (Advocate, Bombay High Court) Mr. Aditya Sondhi
(Advocate, Karnataka High Court), Mr. Ajay Thomas (Registrar, London Court of
International Arbitration, India), Mr. Vivekananda N. (Head (South Asia) & Counsel,
Singapore International Arbitration Centre), Mr. Nangavaram Rajah (Nani
Palkhivala Arbitration Centre), Mr. Promod Nair (Partner, J Sagar Associates),
Mr. Shreyas Jayasimha (Partner, AZB & Partners), amongst others.
