Welcome to Racial Equality for Arbitration Lawyers (“R.E.A.L.”), and thank you for taking time to read this inaugural edition of the R.E.A.L. Newsletter!
A core mission of R.E.A.L. is to create a more equal, inclusive, and cooperative international arbitration field, as well as to champion underrepresented groups in international arbitration, by creating opportunities for and spotlighting ethnically and racially diverse international arbitration practitioners.
Now, we know what you’re thinking . . . with countless amazing lawyers globally, how in the world will R.E.A.L. accomplish this?

The R.E.A.L. Newsletter is a quarterly publication that showcases the amazing contributions of diverse international arbitration practitioners around the globe. It is a plat-form with a variety of information related to activities of interest, legal developments, and other topics relevant to international arbitration.
Most importantly, the Newsletter (in conjunction with the R.E.A.L.
