Arbitration in Practice Part 1: A close look at the IBA Guidelines for Drafting International Arbitration Clauses

Part 1 of a 4-part webinar series presented by the IBA Asia Pacific Arbitration Group, supported by the IBA Arbitration Committee and the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum

Friday 5 June 2020, 0930-1045 BST

 

Arbitration is first and foremost a product of the parties’ consent and an arbitration clause is the instrument through which the parties simultaneously divest domestic courts of the jurisdiction to decide the parties’ dispute and instead authorize an arbitral tribunal to take up the task.  In this respect, the drafting of an arbitration clause is the key determinant of the scope of an arbitral tribunal’s jurisdiction and powers.

The IBA’s guidelines helps drafters of arbitration clauses to identify and avoid certain pitfalls by providing both a foundational framework of general principles as well as specific guidance on selected issues such as the drafting of multi-party or multi-contract arbitration clauses.  The speakers will take participants through the guidelines and share examples of how certain principles contained therein manifest during the conduct and practice of arbitration proceedings.

The first session of this webinar series will address the IBA Guidelines for Drafting International Arbitration Clauses.
