SEMINAR: Online Arbitration: What Technology can do for Arbitral Institutions
Posted on Thursday, January 02 @ 12:50:14 CET by eglobal

Events and Courses on ADR/ODR ODR_Moderator writes "The seminar is free-of-charge and is being presented on two alternative dates: Thursday January 16 or Friday January 17. Brunel University, United Kingdom.

The expectation is that online technology will speed up and reduce the cost of international arbitration proceedings. It is expected to remove the need for sending large quantities of paper through courier services and replace face-to-face meetings by cheaper and easier online video conferencing. This seminar will ask the question "How realistic are these expectations?"

For the last two years the E-Arbitration-T team of lawyers and technologists have been looking at these issues. A key feature of international arbitration is that it delivers a result - the award - that national courts will recognise and enforce. We cannot simply substitute Internet and computer technology without considering the criteria courts will apply in deciding that the award was made properly and fairly within the intent of relevant international law. This seminar will look at the technological options and the rules and procedures necessary to exploit them. It will also examine the need for change in the international legal framework to reap the full technological benefits.

E-Arbitration-T cannot give an unqualified endorsement of these expectations. We have carried out careful analysis of different options and in some key areas the procedures adopted have much more impact on the speed and cost of dispute resolution than the choice of technology. At the seminar we will present these findings and show where we believe technology can deliver real advantages. The seminar is free-of-charge and is being presented on two alternative dates: Thursday January 16 or Friday January 17.
