20 Essex Street arbitrator, David Caron, is to leave his role as Dean of Law at King’s College London to become a judge at the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal in The Hague. He replaced another Chambers member, Charles N Brower, in the role.
Caron will serve as one of three U.S. judges on the nine member tribunal established in 1981. The tribunal was set up to resolve economic claims that arose from Iran’s Islamic revolution.
David Caron was a Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley before working as a legal assistant to Judges Richard M. Mosk and Charles N. Brower at the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, and then joining King’s College London as the Dean of The Dickson Poon School of Law. He currently serves as a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Rule of Law, member of the Executive Council of the American Bar Association Section on International law, member of the U.S. Department of State Advisory Committee on Public International Law, Co-Director of the Law of the Sea Institute, Co-Director of Berkeley’s Miller Institute on Global Challenges and the Law, and as a member of the Board of Editors of the American Journal of International Law.
We congratulate David Caron on his new role, and Charles Brower on the end of his successful tenure there.
