Arbitration in Practice: a close look at the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration

Arbitration in Practice: a close look at the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration

Part 3 of a 4-part webinar series

A webinar presented by the IBA Asia Pacific Arbitration Group, supported by the IBA Arbitration Committee and the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum

7 AUG 2020 0930 – 1045 BST

International arbitration brings together parties and counsel from a plethora of backgrounds and legal cultures. As a result, aside from the general consensus that full-blown American-style discovery would not be appropriate for such arbitral proceedings, parties’ counsel may disagree on the standards that should apply in relation to evidentiary issues.

Although experienced Tribunals will often be adept in exercising their wide discretion to craft the most suitable evidentiary rules for their specific proceeding, many still refer to the Rules’ recommendations for a fair, efficient and cost-effective process for the taking of evidence. The speakers will take participants through the Rules, addressing the best practices in relation to inter alia document production, taking of witness and expert evidence and the Tribunal’s powers to conduct fact-finding.
