Since 2009, CEDEP has been organizing the Latin American Arbitration Conference (CLA), building bridges between Latin America and the world.

The various editions in Asunción, Medellín, Punta Cana, Buenos Aires, Curitiba, Miami, La Paz, Cusco, and Montevideo have been notably successful. We celebrated the tenth anniversary again in Asunción, with a full week of events in 2019. For obvious reasons, it couldn’t be held in 2020, and in 2021, a special edition was held as the first virtual format. In 2022, we met again in Montevideo in June and had a special edition in October as part of the General Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law (IACL). And since 2023, a special meeting called CLAustro has been added.

All thirteen editions make CLA the most important annual arbitration event in Latin America and one of the most relevant in the world.

This year, on Thursday, June 20, and Friday, June 21, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the fourteenth edition of CLA will be held, along with the Arbitration and Mediation Center of the Brazil Canada Chamber of Commerce (CAM-CCBC) as the local organizer. Additional activities are planned for Wednesday, June 19, such as CLA-40 and CLAustro.

CLA is directed by professors Diego Fernández Arroyo and José A. Moreno Rodríguez, with recognized experience in the academic, arbitration, and professional world.

CLA has had the participation of renowned world figures in arbitration, such as Patricia Nacimiento, Yves Derains, Jan Paulsson, Alexis Mourre, George Bermann, Luca Radicati Di Brozzolo, Emmanuel Gaillard, Isabelle Michou, Sophie Napper, and many others.

More than 650 speakers and arbitrators participated in the 13 editions of CLA. There were over 6,000 registrants from various countries in Latin America and beyond, and more than 30 of the main arbitration centers and institutions in the region and the world have supported the event.

CLA has a presence on the most important social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram.
