International Arbitration: is Russia different?
27 - 28 June 2008
The AIJA International Arbitration Commission is proud to announce a brand new seminar on International Arbitration – organized with the support of the IBA.
In a format designed to guarantee a lively debate, panellists will address the challenges given by conducting international arbitrations in Russia and/or with Russian parties. It will be a great occasion to hear from top level practitioners, academics and experts from all over the world their views on dispute resolution methods in one of the fastest developing economies and most controversial societies in the world. The seminar is a must for all lawyers and in-house counsels interested in international arbitration and for those who have business in Russia and/or with Russian clients and want to be prepared to handle any potential future disputes. In particular, the Seminar will be the perfect place for providing young arbitration practitioners an opportunity to establish and/or further develop relationships with colleagues from other firms and countries. The two day seminar programme will deal with topics introduced by a moderator and then debated by two or more panellists representing both the Western tradition in international arbitration and the Russian view. The sessions will cover all major aspects of international arbitration that are of interest to (both young and established) practitioners, including the appointment of arbitrators, the role of local procedural traditions in international arbitration, the evidence taking phase, legal reasoning in arbitral awards and the enforcement of arbitral awards. This is the first time in recent history that AIJA goes to Russia! This is a unique opportunity to benefit from an outstanding scientific programme in one of the most beautiful and exciting capitals in the world. The social programme will live up to the highest expectations!
