ICC International Court of Arbitration chalks up Spanish arbitration successes
Posted on Tuesday, December 02 @ 13:59:25 CET by eglobal

Events and Courses on ADR/ODR A Colleague writes "Last month, ICC launched two new arbitration initiatives aimed specifically at Spanish lawyers, corporate counsel, business professionals and academics.

For many years, the ICC Institute of World Business Law has been organizing PIDA seminars providing practically-orientated, interactive training in various areas of international trade law, including arbitration. These seminars traditionally take place in English and French. In October 2003, for the first time, a PIDA seminar on international commercial arbitration was held entirely in Spanish.

Some 50 participants from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain and Venezuela attended the event, which was presided over by Yves Derains, former Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. The participants’ concerns
were reflected in stimulating discussions on arbitrations involving state entities and the limits of party autonomy.

‘When determining the rules of procedure to be applied in an arbitration, Latin American lawyers are sometimes bewildered by the flexibility of the ICC Rules of Arbitration,’ said Eduardo Silva-Romero, Deputy Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and himself a native of Colombia. ‘The seminar allows participants to become more familiar with the ICC procedure by studying mock cases.’

The PIDA seminar was closely followed by another première: a two-day arbitration conference in Miami focusing on topics of particular interest to Latin America lawyers and parties. The conference covered both theoretical subjects such as public policy and practical matters such as the taking of evidence and the influence of civil law on arbitration practice.

All Latin American countries were represented amongst the 220 participants at Miami, many of whom also came from the USA. The event provided a rare opportunity to hear arbitration specialists, including members of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and its Secretariat, discuss and answer questions on key aspects of ICC arbitration in relation to Latin America."
