Whether and to what extent an arbitrator may accept appointments in multiple references concerning the same or overlapping subject matter?
When should an arbitrator make disclosure of circumstances which may give rise to justifiable doubts as to her impartiality?
What are the consequences of failing to make disclosure of circumstances which should have been disclosed?
