The International Arbitration Forum aims to demystify international arbitration. This training session uses a combination of SIAC’s innovative mock arbitration training video and panel discussions to provide a practical guide to all the key aspects of international arbitration. Arbitrations are confidential so the SIAC mock arbitration video has been designed to demonstrate the arbitral process and give an insight into the role of an arbitral institution. Panelists will share their views and expertise on the various stages of an arbitration, and offer both regional and global perspectives on current issues and hot topics in international arbitration. This session will be an unparalleled opportunity for in-house counsel, legal practitioners and arbitrators to gain a broader and deeper understanding of international arbitration.
Adrian Hughes QC of Thirty Nine Essex Street will be moderating the final panel discussion of the day, which covers ‘Enforcement Of Foreign Arbitral Awards’. This discussion will focus on current issues on enforcement of arbitral awards and SIAC’s processes to ensure enforceability of its awards. Panellists will discuss these issues in the context of the development of a free-trade environment.
