The cross-examination of witnesses is one of the stages where clear differences in the legal traditions, languages, styles and cultures can be observed, and that are unique to international arbitration.
This ICC YAF Conference will combine a theoretical and practical approach. It will begin with a mock case on cross-examination of witnesses, followed by an interactive round table on the techniques of examination and their variants in different cultures. The debate will also highlight the particularities of the cross-examination of witnesses in international arbitration compared to judicial proceedings.
Who should attend?
This conference is aimed at young arbitration practitioners of approximately 40 years and under: counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The ICC YAF Conference will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to enrich their network in the region.
