Luis Bergolla is a Lecturer and the Teaching Fellow for the International Economic Law, Business and Policy LL.M. Program, and a JSD candidate. Luisâ€™ dissertation project builds on his award-winning JSM thesisâ€”A Taxonomy of ICSID Cases Involving Party-Appointed Quantum Expertsâ€”and relies on mixed methods to assess the overall conditions under which the taking of expert evidence constitutes an efficient practiceâ€”when does it work, and when does it not? Luisâ€™ project also assesses the reasons behind the ever-growing gap among party-appointed experts, and the efficacy of bias mitigation mechanisms applied to experts and adjudicators.
In his private practice, Luis represents major corporate clients, international investors, and sovereigns in litigation and arbitration disputes, and appears as expert on foreign law before the courts and international arbitral tribunals.
Before coming to Stanford, Luis participated in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Honors Program, was Visiting Researcher at the Georgetown University Law Center, and clerked for an Arizona Superior Court judge.
