As a world top three economy, Japan has had a tremendous impact on business across the United States and countries in Latin America. Japan’s vibrant international business community relies on international arbitration, and the volumes of cross-border transactions between Japan and U.S. demonstrate the importance of dispute resolution in Japan. The Japan Commercial Arbitration Association (JCAA), Japan International Dispute Resolution Centre (JIDRC), the University of Miami School of Law and the Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS) are pleased to offer the webinar on the Japanese economic partnership in the Americas, the reformation of international arbitration and mediation in Japan, and the developing capacity through a Miami – Japan connection in this field.
