Centre for Advanced Research in Dispute Settlement [CARDS] established under the aegis
of Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University, Vizag, is a student driven initiative to
promote Arbitration as a mode of dispute settlement as well as to encourage students
towards choosing Arbitration as their career.
CARDS started functioning from 23rd September 2016. Since its inception, it has successfully conducted five events, three domestic workshops at Vizag and two international workshops at London and Singapore.
The events conducted saw participation from various sections of the legal fraternity and saw speakers from Clyde & Co., Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Dentons, Three Crowns LLP, Ashurst, Debevoise & Plimpton, Keating Chambers, Lalive, Lévy Kaufmann-Kohler, Volterra & Fietta, Shearman & Sterling, White & Case, and WilmerHale, among others.
Apart from the above mentioned events, CARDS has successfully launched two books on Arbitration which are a compilation of articles. The two editions were ‘Pari Passu-Arbitration on an Equal footing with Arbitration’ & ‘Arbit Praxi- Process of Arbitration’. We at CARDS are pleased to announce the third edition of the book (yet to be titled) which shall have an ISBN no.
