This is an online event hosted jointly by CIArb’s YMG and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), taking place on 7 May 2021. The event takes place at 1.00am GMT (9.00am SGT / 9.00pm ET), please check your local time zone.
The event brings together the young member groups for both CIArb and SIAC (CIArb YMG and YSIAC). Our panellists will exchange perspectives about the practice of arbitration from (almost) opposite ends of the globe, focusing on how clients and lawyers in the US and in Singapore perceive arbitration. The discussion will range from the substantive (e.g., the effectiveness of arbitration for dispute resolution, as compared to litigation and alternatives like mediation, the enforceability of arbitral awards, and Singapore common law versus US common law practice in various areas of arbitration such as disclosure and confidentiality) to the day-to-day (e.g., what the life of an arbitration associate is like in both places, what networking is like, etc).
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
