Lam SBS, JP, Board Member, Hospital Authority and Chairman, Hospital Authority Support Services Development Committee. The session will be moderated by K.K. Cheung, Partner, Deacons.

About the session: Remote hearings in Arbitration and Litigation

Before the pandemic, parties were usually required to attend hearings in person for arbitration or court proceedings. Nowadays, it is common to have remote hearings in order to address health concerns and travelling restrictions. However, remote hearings may not be the perfect substitute for physical hearings. In order to facilitate remote hearings, various guidelines have been published by the Court and arbitration bodies. In this session, the pros and cons of remote hearings will be discussed. The speakers will also share their views about whether remote hearings should replace physical hearings in the long term.

Date: Thursday, 22 July 2021

Time: 17:00 – 18:00 Hong Kong time followed by virtual networking
