Professors Trey Childress and Jack Coe Host Discussion on Career Pathways in International Arbitration
On April 18, Professors Trey Childress and Jack Coe hosted an insightful discussion with Mr. Luke Sobota on careers in international commercial arbitration, in partnership with the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.
Mr. Sobota is a founding partner of Three Crowns, a specialty law firm dedicated to providing excellence in counseling and advocacy in international arbitration and international law, with offices in London, Paris, Washington D.C., and Singapore. Mr. Sobota represents private and sovereign clients in some of their largest and most important commercial, investor-state, and inter-state arbitrations, including the successful prosecution of one of the largest ICC cases in history.
Mr. Sobota shared key turning points in his career with students, including serving as a clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist on the U.S. Supreme Court, practicing at Jones Day, and starting Three Crowns with a focus on international disputes. He encouraged students to reflect continuously on their pursuits and take advantage of opportunities in their careers, including writing on topics of international law, participating in mentorship programs and competitions, and participating in pro bono projects.
