The voice of the California international arbitration and ADR community.

Our Vision

California Arbitration (CalArb) is the voice of the California international arbitration and ADR community.

We guide businesses, including their corporate counsel and law firm counsel, on the benefits of international arbitration and mediation. And we provide resources for legal practitioners around the globe on international dispute resolution in California.

Since our founding in October 2021, California Arbitration has already grown to over a hundred members actively working to implement our mission.

Our Plans

California Arbitration will be providing opportunities for the legal community to connect and grow international arbitration and international mediation practice in California.

Our first major initiative was supporting the California Lawyers Association (CLA) in the First Annual California International Arbitration Week which was held March 2022 through live, virtual and hybrid programming. We are partnering with CLA for California International Week to be held 13-17 March 2023.

California Arbitration is supporting an ongoing series of programs hosted by leading law firms in California. We intend to expand our offerings as our membership grows.

In July 2022, we launched committees through which members around the world on actively working on projects involving California international arbitration and ADR.


Membership is available to all interested legal practitioners. Lawyers from California and around the world are welcome. Join today to become a Founding Member and be included on our online Membership Directory.

California Arbitration invites members to submit articles for publication and news on events for distribution.

Leadership and Support

California Arbitration is a grass-roots organization led by its members. Leadership opportunities will be developed in our inaugural year as members collaborate on our path forward. A major goal is providing meaningful opportunities for new and diverse practitioners.

As we grow, we will also provide opportunities for corporate and law firm sponsors to support international arbitration and ADR in California and expand our reach.
