ICC YAF: Practical Tips for In-house Lawyers

Tokyo, Japan, • English

ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing jointly with Japan In-house Lawyers Association (JILA) a conference dedicated to ICC Arbitration rules.


How familiar are you with the ICC Arbitration Rules? Are you comfortable using them? The ICC Arbitration Rules are among the most frequently used arbitration rules around the globe. In this seminar, Ms. Pui-Ki Emmanuelle Ta, the head of the ICC Asia Office (Hong Kong) and Counsel of the Secretariat of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, will talk about ICC Arbitration, including the latest updates to the ICC Arbitration Rules that came into force on 1 March 2017. Ms. Ta and arbitration practitioners will answer your questions, which you can submit ahead of the seminar, when you register for this event. There will also be a mock ICC arbitration by arbitration practitioners.
