What is the role of innovation and creativity in International Arbitration moving forward? ICSID and the ICC have both recently announced updates to their rules, and other institutions could be close behind. Will the ICSID and ICC updates reflect a pattern and goal of uniformity, consistency and foreseeability as across the ADR institutions, or are we seeing an emerging trend of creativity and variety? From a policy and practicality standpoint, how uniform should institutional rules be?
Join us for a conversation on how varied the future of International Arbitration rules will be, and how innovative the field ought to be moving forward. Refreshments and appetizers will be provided.
