The International Centre for Dispute Resolution was launched in 1996 as the international arm of the American Arbitration Association and provides administrative services—including arbitration and mediation—for international disputes. For arbitrations in the international context, the ICDR applies any one of several sets of rules and procedures, foremost of which are the ICDR Rules, part of the ICDR’s International Dispute Resolution Procedures.
Effective June 1, 2014, the ICDR amended its International Rules. Nearly two years later, arbitrators, practitioners and corporate users should be aware of the ongoing implications of the changes.
This 60-minute recorded webinar examines the amendments to the Rules, why they were made, and how they have been applied in practice since their implementation.
Some of the areas that are covered include the following:
- Key changes to the Rules (expedited procedures, mediation, joinder and consolidation, enhanced arbitrator powers, exchanges of information);
- Practical implications of the changes;
- How the changes compare to recent amendments in other arbitration rules;
- Looking ahead: Trends in international arbitration.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of ADR, particularly in the international context.
