Welcome to London International Disputes Week 2021

London International Disputes Week 2021 comes at a significant period for the UK legal sector, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, post-Brexit and amid an uncertain global political environment. Through a programme of virtual sessions, you will have the opportunity to hear leading experts discuss and debate the ever-changing landscape of international dispute resolution. You will also be taking part in the biggest celebration there is of the heritage of London as a leading centre for handling international disputes.

The programme for 2021 will draw on current global issues facing the sector. Themes include: the role of London in a decentralised world, digital advocacy, social and environmental responsibility and issues, the mental health challenges faced in the legal profession and the role of technology. Using London’s position as a major international seat for the dispute resolution business, LIDW21 will engage with international perspectives across all sectors and explore how the industry can adapt, evolve and progress.

LIDW21 builds on the success of its inaugural year in 2019. LIDW strives to be forward-thinking and inclusive, demonstrating legal London’s commitment to diversity. London holds international appeal as a global centre for dispute resolution – whether through its courts or by arbitration, mediation, expert determination or negotiation – built upon a rich tradition of English law dating back to the Magna Carta.

We look forward to welcoming you, virtually, to LIDW in May 2021.
