The Metaverse Dispute Resolution Colloquium is an online research-oriented forum organized by the Digital Law Center (University of Geneva), the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) and MetaverseLegal (a decentralized initiative dedicated to exploring the legal implications of the Metaverse) that brings together experienced arbitration practitioners from MetaverseLegal, and young scholars / international dispute resolution & international arbitration students with an interest in technology, web 3.0 and the metaverse, in order to explore selected legal issues arising from disputes in the metaverse and about the metaverse.

Our speakers will present and discuss research and policy questions at the intersection of the metaverse and of international dispute resolution and international arbitration.

The Colloquium aims to offer to young scholars, practitioners and students specialized in international dispute resolution & international arbitration the opportunity to actively participate and contribute to the discussion by their comments and reactions. The Colloquium further aims to create a global community of young legal scholars and practitioners working on metaverse dispute resolution issues.
