FIRST CONFERENCE ORGANIZED BY THE CHARTERED INSTITUTE OF ARBITRATORS ON THE “SYNERGIES AND DIVERGENCES BETWEEN CIVIL LAW AND COMMON LAW IN INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION”
The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators is launching a series of three international conferences that will take place in 2017. The first conference is scheduled to take place in Dubai on March 8-9, where Benoit Le Bars, managing partner of Lazareff Le Bars and recognised for his experience as counsel and arbitrator in international arbitration in the region, will contribute his views on practical solutions concerning decision-making in the arbitral process.
The second and third conferences will take place in Johannesburg in July, and in Paris in December. The objective of these conferences is to analyse the synergies and the divergences between civil law and common law in international arbitration, to identify the difficulties that exist and determine the points of convergence in international practice.
These conferences will allow for practitioners from different backgrounds, who are evolving in often mixed judicial environments, to come together and exchange key perspectives on international arbitration. These exchanges would also make the work of the conference accessible to local practitioners and contribute to the training of young specialists. The fact that one of the conferences is organised in Africa, highlights Africa’s importance on the global arbitration stage.
This conference in Dubai next week will bring together government officials who will open the debates, speakers from diverse backgrounds including judges, lawyers, law professors, experts and directors of arbitral institutions.
