Third-year Mizzou Law student Blair Bopp was selected to be an American Society of International Law representative at the 64th session of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Working Group II (Arbitration & Conciliation), held at the United Nations during the week of February 1 in New York City.

At the United Nations, Bopp will attend sessions of the commission and its working groups as an observer. Bopp will observe how states interact while discussing issues related to the settlement of commercial disputes and the enforcement of settlement agreements. Further, during the week Bopp will attend U.N. proceedings, the UNCITRAL Notes on Organizing Arbitral Proceedings will be revised.

“I expect this to be an incredible learning opportunity,” Bopp said, “as I will gain insight into how such complex issues are addressed from a transnational perspective, and how states choose to balance their interests. Attending this meeting is a great opportunity for me to explore several interests of mine – international law practice and arbitration – as well as learn more about the complexities that go into crafting a multinational arbitral framework.”
