ICC YAF: Rules of Evidence in International Arbitration

Abuja, Nigeria, • English

ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing an engaging panel discussion on the rules of evidence in international arbitration.

Description

Parties involved in an international arbitration are not usually bound by any particular national law or civil procedure rule regarding the production and use of evidence. Instead, it is governed by a flexible matrix of rules that will vary from arbitration to arbitration. This event provides an overview of the different factors that influence the production and use of evidence in an international arbitration. It also highlights a number of specific evidential issues that often need to be considered at the outset and during the course of an arbitration.

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.
