All New and All Better? – The Quest for New Models of Commercial Dispute Resolution

8 November 2016 | By: Pressestelle EBS Universität
Ankündigung EBS Arbitration Day 2016

In the current TTIP and CETA negotiations dispute resolution is a central question. The EBS Law School Arbitration Day on 18 November 2016 focuses on the quest and assessment for improved systems of arbitration.

No major arbitral institution has yet fully reformed its arbitration rules, though appropriate improvements of these systems are long overdue. Accordingly, the EBS Law School Arbitration Day is concerned with the contemporary resolving of international commercial disputes and a necessary reform and evolution of arbitration rules.

Is there a need of a European commercial court, in view of international trade agreements such as the Transatlantic and Investment Partnership (TTIP)? Could it be worthwhile taking a look at important arbitral bodies such as the Iran-United States Tribunal, which works (secretly) behind the scenes influencing the world of arbitration? “From New Rules to New Courts: The Quest for Improved Systems of Arbitration” – under this heading the EBS Law School Arbitration Day gives a greater understanding of dispute resolution and deals with instruments of internationally unified law that govern cross-border commercial transactions.

The EBS Law School Arbitration Day is hosted by the Research Center for Transnational Commercial Dispute Resolution (TCDR) at the EBS Law School in cooperation with Clifford Chance.
