20th Annual International Arbitration Day Conference
30 Mar - 31 Mar 2017
Burden of proof and production of documents: Redfern schedules, adverse inferences, privilege issues: is this system really working?
Friday 31 March (1130 - 1300)
European Regional Forum (Lead)
An analysis of the current mainstream system of document production in international arbitration and suggestions as to the possibility of improving it. • Have Redfern schedules gone out of control? • Are there ways to limit excesses effectively? • Do arbitral tribunals actually make adverse inferences? • How can privilege work in international arbitration with so many different legal systems involved, each of them with its own approach of the issue?
