The Department of State's Advisory Committee on Private International Law (ACPIL) will hold its annual meeting on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. The meeting will be held in WebEx. The program is scheduled to run from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
During the meeting, we will discuss major developments in private international law over the past year, including the finalization of the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments and the Singapore Convention on Mediation. We will also discuss expected work in the area of international family law in the coming year and seek comments on the draft Code of Conduct for Adjudicators in Investor-State Dispute Settlement, prepared jointly by the secretariats of United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Finally, we will be seeking input from members on possible future projects for the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and United Nations International Institute for Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT). If time allows other topics of interest could be discussed.
