This is an online event hosted by CIArb’s East Asia Branch Young Members Group, as part of its 2nd Annual Conference. The event will take place at 7.00am GMT, 3.00pm SGT (Singapore time). Please check your local time zone.
This webinar will be discussing the trends in arbitration that have arisen due to the increase of Chinese parties in ADR. The discussion seeks to address the following: Are there more mediation cases now? Are there measures currently in place to ensure enforcement in China (ex. HK-Mainland Agreement on Enforcement of Interim Measures)? Are institutions or law firms hiring more Chinese-speaking lawyers? Has there been an increase in demand for Chinese-speaking experts and other professionals? Should young ADR practitioners start learning Mandarin? What is the status of foreign arbitral institutions that have opened offices in China? How about the status of Chinese arbitral institutions that have opened offices abroad?
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge but pre-registration is a must.
