CIArb is pleased to promote the launch of Professor Derek Roebuck’s new book, English Arbitration and Mediation in the Long Eighteenth Century.
Professor Roebuck MCIArb has made a very significant contribution to the Institute over the years, principally as Editor of The International Journal of Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Management. In celebration of his involvement with CIArb, the Institute hosts the annual ‘Roebuck Lecture’, which is named after him.
The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies at the University of London invites you to celebrate the publication of the latest volume of Professor Roebuck’s landmark study on the history of arbitral practice on Wednesday 6 November 2019.
English Arbitration and Mediation in the Long Eighteenth Century, co-authored with Dr Francis Calvert Boorman and Dr Rhiannon Markless, examines alternative dispute resolution practices from 1700 – 1815. Drawing on court records, law reports, newspapers and memoirs, the book considers how contentious issues were settled in a variety of arenas and across all strata of English society. Both State and private arbitration and mediation services are explored, in areas as diverse as business, sport and religion. Finally, the book ends with a discussion of the increasing involvement of legal professionals.
Hosted by Professor Carl Stychin, Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, the event will begin with a welcome from international arbitrator V.V. Veeder QC FCIArb of Essex Court Chambers. Lead researcher Dr Francis Boorman will present a short summary of the book’s findings, to be followed by a panel discussion featuring Karyl Nairn QC FCIArb, European co-head of the International Litigation and Arbitration Group of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

In a significant moment for mediation, the highly anticipated Churchill judgment overturns the decision in Halsey, confirming it is not a breach of human rights to integrate mediation into the court process and, where appropriate, to order parties to mediate. CMC, Ciarb and CEDR joined forces to intervene in the case, arguing strongly for this outcome.
