The Leading Arbitrators Symposium on the Conduct of International Arbitration, an annual highlight of the International Arbitration calendar since 2005, is “going digital.” On May 20, 2020, we will begin a monthly series of 90-minute conversations with the world's leading arbitrators.
The first session will consider one of the principal issues confronting the international arbitration community as a result of Covid-19: the increased focus on virtual hearings.
Audio and videoconferencing have been available to arbitrators and counsel in international arbitrations for many years. However, current restrictions on travel and physical gatherings have pushed arbitrators and counsel to confront the possibility of conducting evidentiary hearings entirely by such means.
Please join us for a lively exploration of this topic on May 20, 2020 from 1:00 PM-2:30 PM EST / 7:00 PM-8:30 PM CET. This Zoom conference, chaired by Grant Hanessian (Baker & McKenzie, New York), will feature a discussion among Juan Fernández-Armesto (Armesto & Asociados), Bernard Hanotiau (Hanotiau & van den Berg), John Judge (Arbitration Place), Sophie Nappert (3VB), Craig S. Miles (King & Spalding), and Emilie Gonin (Doughty Street Chambers).
The conference registration fee includes 30 days of complimentary access to Arbitration Law, a database powered by JURIS covering virtually all forms of international, as well as U.S., arbitration. Arbitration Law offers more than 13,500 documents with over 200 Proprietary Treatises, Practice Manuals, and Monographs and 11 leading journals with complete archives. In addition to primary resources, Arbitration Law contains exclusive works contributed by preeminent arbitration practitioners and scholars, including our esteemed panelists. Arbitration Law’s digital library offers exclusive access to comprehensive and authoritative works that analyze all aspects of the arbitral process.
NYS CLE credit and a General Certificate of Attendance will be offered.
