In the absence in the Arab world of a forum for honoring Arab scholars and practitioners who have distinguished themselves through their contribution to the practice and study of international law and arbitration, BCDR has started such a tradition.

Dr. Ahmed Sadek El-Kosheri

In 2015, BCDR produced the "Festschrift": Ahmed Sadek El-Kosheri: From the Arab World to the Globalization of International Law and Arbitration. Published by Kluwer Law International, this book includes articles by forty six academics, practitioners, and colleagues of Dr. El-Kosheri on various legal subjects relating to his work.

Samir Saleh

In 2019, BCDR produced the "Liber Amicorum" Samir Saleh: Reflections on Dispute Resolution with Particular Emphasis on the Arab World. Also published by Kluwer Law International, this anthology of nineteen articles in English and French focuses on law and dispute resolution in areas in which Samir Saleh distinguished himself--international arbitration and commercial law, in particular in relation to the Arab world.
