Nominations welcomed for Special 10th Birthday OGEMID Awards - Closing date is 10 January 2013
13 December 2012
As part of our celebration of OGEMID's 10th birthday, the OGEMID Awards this year feature a new set of categories. Closing date is 10 January 2013. No block voting please.
The categories are as follows:
- THE RISING STARS AWARD. This Award wishes to recognise initiatives aimed at encouraging or mentoring the next generation of academics / practitioners in international arbitration. We thought of nominations of mooting events; initiatives in universities; student initiatives; young practitioners' associations / events; mentoring programmes in law firms or arbitral institutions or elsewhere;
- THE DIVERSITY AWARD. OGEMID founder Professor Thomas W. Wälde believed in chipping away at the perception of international arbitration as a privileged, Western club. Diversity is understood here in its widest acception - another term (neologism?) to convey the same idea would be 'inclusiveness'. Again no area is off limits: it may be that some law firms or arbitral bodies have relevant programmes, or other professional or pro bono associations, or educational bodies;
- THE CREATIVITY AWARD. In the sense of 'thinking outside the box'. Any notable publications, awards, media, speeches? Or creation of associations?
- THE TRADITIONAL AWARD. The most influential international arbitration case of the past ten years, whether or not it resulted in an Award.
