On Tuesday 21 September at 14:30 – 16:30 (CET) Professor Jones will participate in Reed Smith’s event for Paris Arbitration Week: “Eight disagreements over how to enhance the value of witness evidence” in which the panel will debate and discuss eight points of contention in the international arbitration community with respect to witness evidence, including “cross examination does not enhance the value of witness evidence” to “save in rare situations, documents should be accorded more probative value than witness testimony”. Following a presentation by Dr Kimberly Wade on psychological factors affecting witness evidence, the firm’s Global Chair of International Arbitration, José Astigarraga, and Paris-based international arbitration partner, Peter Rosher, will moderate the interactive, dynamic discussion among the panelists and audience members will have a chance to vote on each point of contention.
