Promoting Women in Arbitration, the event was attended by Professor Dr. Nayla Comair-Obeid as a surprise guest keynote speaker.
Hosts were overwhelmed with the level of participation, with over 40 female members and member guests represented on the night to include representatives from a number of local arbitral centres (DIAC, DIFC-LCIA, EMAC), Arbitral Women and WiAR.
One of the attending members later posted a group photograph on Linkedin which went viral in less than one day, with over 4,300 views and counting.
