Almost two decades ago the arbitral community first recognised the spectre of arbitral secretaries as the ‘fourth arbitrator’. Yet despite greater regulation and codification of the role of arbitral secretaries, this perception remains widespread. Recognising that this can only be detrimental to the legitimacy of the arbitral process, the ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing an event to explore how – finally – we can lay the ‘fourth arbitrator’ to rest.
The event will be followed by a roof-top cocktail reception.
Who should attend?
This conference is aimed at young arbitration practitioners of approximately 40 years or under: counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The ICC YAF Conference is an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration and to enrich their network in the region.
