Cameron Miles has been appointed a Fellow at the Centre for International Governance and Dispute Resolution (CIGAD) at King’s College London University, under the co-directorship of Professor Philippa Webb and Professor Holger Hestermeyer.
A new and ground-breaking initiative, CIGAD brings together academics, policymakers and practitioners working in the areas of international law and dispute resolution to help tackle these global challenges. It further provides students with the opportunity to participate in world-leading research and to engage in discussions on the critical issues facing the international community.
Whilst at CIGAD, Cameron plans on developing two academic projects: a framework for implied terms in treaties, and an edited commentary on the State Immunity Act 1978.
Cameron specialises in public international law and international commercial and investment treaty arbitration. His practice as a leading junior is split between domestic and international courts and tribunals. In England, he has developed a market-leading practice on state immunity and enforcement matters heard in the Commercial Court, that also takes him to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. He also advises on such proceedings in other common law jurisdictions, including Australia and New Zealand. Elsewhere, he has appeared in high-stakes proceedings before the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and the International Court of Justice. In the arbitral arena, Cameron has developed considerable expertise in investment treaty arbitration, appearing in 16 separate proceedings, whether during the initial arbitration, in relation to post-award remedies, or in relation to arbitration-related applications in the English courts.
Members of Chambers congratulate Cameron on his appointment.
