ICC YAF Conference on the Occasion of the ICC Vis Pre-Moot

Paris, France, • English

ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) and Norton Rose Fulbright are co-organizing a conference in Paris on 3 April 2017.


The ICC YAF Conference is part of the ICC Pre-Moot for the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. It will be organised in the evening of the first Pre-Moot day. The panels will address issues related security for costs, and the publication of arbitral awards.

The Conference will bring together young arbitration practitioners and moot participants to discuss two important issues of today’s international arbitration. The first panel will address an issue related to this year’s Moot problem–the security for costs. The second panel will discuss the benefits and downsides of enhanced transparency in international arbitration.

19:00-20:00Oxford-style debate: This house believes that international arbitration awards should be published
