Webinar on ‘Revision of the ICC Arbitration Rules’

(The following post comes to us from Rohan Bagai, who has previously contributed posts on this Blog here and here)
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Court of Arbitration Secretary General, Mr. Jason Fry and Ms. Francesca Mazza, Counsel and Secretary to the ICC Commission on Arbitration are set to impart their knowledge and share their experience in a one-hour, interactive webinar (web-based seminar) on June 23, 2010 at 4 pm (GMT+2), which focuses on revision of the ICC Rules of Arbitration (the “Rules”).

In October 2008, a ‘Task Force on Revision of the ICC Rules of Arbitration’ (the “Task Force”) was constituted in order to ensure that the Rules continue to meet the needs of their users, reflecting best practice in the field of international arbitration.

As members of the Drafting Sub-Committee of the Task Force and the Court Secretariat, Mr. Fry and Ms. Mazza will explain the reasons for starting the Rules revision process, its procedure and the current status, and give examples of the changes being presently debated.

The webinar guarantees a live and interactive learning experience for all participants, which would include practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, arbitrators or any other professionals in the field of dispute resolution, who will be able to ask questions and get answers in real time.
