In these COVID-19 times, the workshop will be a remote video arbitration hearing before a distinguished arbitration panel. Using the 2020 Vis Moot competition scenario, the hearing will adopt the procedural Guidelines of CIArb and others for remote arbitration hearings and will be conducted under the LCIA Arbitration Rules. Young practitioners including the 2019 winner of the South East CIArb Student ADR Essay competition will act as counsel for the parties.
This is a not to be missed interactive workshop for CIArb members, arbitration practitioners, lawyers, students and all with an interest in arbitration. It provides an important contribution to the continuing professional education of ADR practitioners.
Those registering for the event will have access to the source material to prepare for the event and ensure maximum benefit from participation and there will be an option to ask the arbitrators questions about the issues.
The workshop itself will take the form of a virtual hearing at which counsel for the parties will make submissions about the procedural and substantive issues the tribunal has identified. On completion of the oral submissions the tribunal will discuss the arguments and structure of their decision and respond to the questions raised by those who register. The event will include access to the reasoned decision of the Tribunal.
Following the event there will be an opportunity to continue the online discussion with the participants and fellow attendees.
Our highly experienced arbitral tribunal is Kim Franklin QC C.Arb FCIArb of Crown Office Chambers, Peter Ashford FCIArb, a partner at Law firm Fox Williams and Michael Frisby FCIArb, a partner at Stevens & Bolton. The event will be led by Charles Brown C.Arb FCIArb, chair of the South East Branch and past President of CIArb.
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge but pre-registration is a must.
