Please join Hugh Carlson and Kimberly Larkin from Three Crowns LLP for an informal conversation about how law students can break into the practice of international arbitration and thrive once there. Time will be set aside for audience Q&A. 

Hugh Carlson is the Managing Director of Three Crowns LLP, in which capacity he is responsible for the firm’s global operations.  He practices in both international commercial and investment treaty arbitration, and has represented clients across a range of industries and under most major arbitral rules systems.  He is recognized in leading rankings and directories.  He is a Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School, co-director of the International Arbitration Workshop at Harvard Law School, and an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law.

Kimberly Larkin is an associate in the Washington, DC office of Three Crowns LLP.  She advises and represents clients in international commercial and investment arbitrations across a variety of sectors, including the energy, mining and natural resources, infrastructure, technology, and financial services industries.  Her recent experience includes acting for the Kingdom of Bahrain in two investment arbitrations arising under the Iran-Bahrain bilateral investment treaty, and for a major energy client in disputes arising from a long-term supply contract with a State-owned entity.  Kimberly received her J.D. from Stanford Law School, an M.A. degree from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, and a B.A. degree from Davidson College.

Cosponsored with Yale Journal of International Law. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP here.
