On Friday, July 18, noted international law specialist Cornel Marian spoke at Gonzaga University School of Law. His presentation, coordinated by Assistant Professor Jessica Kiser and Gonzaga Law’s Center for professional Development, was entitled “International Arbitration and Careers in International Law.”
Deep Experience in International Law
Marian is an associate with the Stockholm Arbitration and Litigation Center Advokatbyrå (SALC) in Stockholm, Sweden. He regularly represents clients in arbitration under the rules of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the International Criminal Court, the International Commercial Arbitration Court, and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. He also provides advice to Swedish and international clients concerning legal proceedings within Sweden and the United States.
A Perspective on Careers in International Law
Marian’s presentation provided Gonzaga law students with an overview of the growing importance of international arbitration and of the role of lawyers and experienced arbitrators in such proceedings. “International arbitration is a valuable means of resolving a commercial or investment dispute that crosses national borders. As such, we should expect to see an increase in corporate clients seeking lawyers with expertise in this field. Cornel Marian offered our students a wonderful perspective on how they could pursue a career abroad in international arbitration or simply better assist clients in the United States with such training,” said Kiser.
Cornel Marian received his J.D. from the University of Iowa after receiving a B.A. and M.A. in Economics from Boston University. Prior to law school, he was a Fulbright Scholar in Romania and worked as a financial analyst and business manager in the Chicago area. Marian is the author of over a dozen articles on international arbitration that have been published in several of the topic’s leading publications.
