The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year that will be marked by a series of high profile conferences around the world.
The centerpiece of its Centenary celebrations is the London Centenary Conference to be held 1-3 July. CIArb’s Centenary Chairman, Professor Doug Jones
comments: “The London CIArb Centenary Conference promises to be a landmark occasion in the International Arbitration calendar. Leading members of the judiciary from around the world will join key users, government policy makers, and eminent practitioners in the field to critically examine and challenge issues crucial to the development of international commercial dispute resolution in the UK, Europe, and elsewhere in the world.
Since centres of international commercial arbitration are of enormous economic value ‘The Principles’ will be key for both established and aspiring seats.
The guidelines identifying what makes an efficient, effective, economical, ethical and safe seat will be debated at the conference by key users, government policy makers, members of the judiciary and eminent practitioners from around the world. They will be debated and developed to be published following the event.
Director General of CIArb, Anthony Abrahams says: “With arbitration centres opening on a regular basis the commercial world and practitioners need to be careful when choosing a venue and seat for dispute resolution.
“The CIArb Centenary Conference in London reviews the factors that a seat requires and will establish the principles that a seat should offer parties and
representatives. These principles will set the framework for the future development of arbitral centres”.
“Both those interested in the future, and those whose personal, policy, or corporate activities involve staying at the leading edge of this area, should not miss this event.”
