Preceded by a Welcoming Wine Tasting Event on 8 April 2024 at AFSA's offices in Sandton, in the Johannesburg Metropolitan Region.

Herbert Smith Freehills is a proud co-host, with the Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa (AFSA) and others, of the inaugural Johannesburg Arbitration Week, where we will unpack the issues and challenges in the fast-paced world of international commercial arbitration. All of the co-hosts are founding members of AFSA, including Herbert Smith Freehills and other leading local and international law firms and South African Bars. 

Johannesburg Arbitration Week (JAW) will take place 9-11 April 2024, and will focus on key initiatives that are shaping and transforming the dispute resolution landscape within the African region.

South African jurist and former Deputy Chief Justice of South Africa Justice Dikgang Moseneke will be the keynote speaker at the opening plenary session, followed by an impressive line-up of high-profile local and international speakers. 

In addition to the main conference agenda, there will be a number of interesting satellite events hosted by AFSA and its founding members.

We look forward to welcoming you to South Africa.
