In this Special Reports, host Laurence Colletti speaks with The Florida Bar International Law Section Chair Eduardo Palmer about his division, international arbitration, and how the state has become a world center for international law. Eduardo gives a brief history of the division, which was founded in 1981, and shares that they have slightly more than 1000 members. He explains that one of their main areas of focus is streamlining rules, regulations, and legislation in Florida to make the state a major international law center. Gordon then discusses Florida Bar rule 1-3.11, how it has spiked the arbitration work they receive by 200-300%, and how it made Miami the second premiere U.S. location for international arbitration relating to the Americas behind New York City. He closes the interview with an overview of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, the sponsored pre-Vis moot dress rehearsal held in Miami, and his top reasons why attorneys should join the ILS.
