The Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law will be hosting a webinar on October 14, 2021 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (New York Time) called, “Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist?”.
In September 2020, Giacomo Rojas Elgueta, James Hosking and Yasmine Lahlou, in collaboration with ICCA, launched the research project “Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?” The project arose from the need for reliable, jurisdiction-specific, information relating to a legal issues arisen due to the increased use of remote arbitral hearings triggered by the COVID pandemic. On the occasion of this webinar, the three co-editors will discuss the challenges of putting together a project that ultimately resulted in the submission of 77 national reports, all based on a standard survey questionnaire and model response, the national reporters were provided with. The three co-editors will also discuss the main take-aways of their research project.
