The Atlanta Center for International Arbitration and Mediation at Georgia State University has named Grace Ha as the first recipient of the AtLAS Fellowship who is to be engaged in helping with the arrangements for the center’s opening in September.
The fellowship is named in honor of the Atlanta Arbitration Society, a founding sponsor and stakeholder of the center, which was established in 2011 to realize the city’s potential as a thought leader in international dispute resolution and as a premier location for international arbitration and mediation.
The center is to be located in the new downtown $82.5 million building of Georgia State’s College of Law and is to host international arbitrations and mediations.
Ben Greer, president and a retired parter at the Atlanta-based law firm Alston and Bird, said in a statement that “The AtlAS Fellowship at ACIAM is a major step toward our vision of making Atlanta a world leader in commercial dispute resolution.”
A Korean-American, Ms. Ha has practiced in both the U.S. and Korea where she has been in the international arbitration section of a Korean law firm. She currently is preparing to return to the U.S. and is to begin her fellowship in August.
Ms. Ha is to assist in developing operating protocols and programs to support the center’s operations and assist in its opening.
She holds a bachelor of science degree from Duke University and a law degree from the Emory University School of Law. She is fluent in Korean.
