Professor Doug Jones AO will participate on a panel at the 41st edition of the ICC Institute Annual Conference on 29 November 2021. This year the theme for the conference is “Rethinking the Paradigms of International Arbitration”.
Doug’s session on Redefining the Role and Value of Expert Evidence will discuss new paradigms in the use and presentation of expert evidence to meet the needs of the tribunal, including exploring alternative models and also whether party-appointed experts are truly independent and when it is appropriate for the tribunal to appoint its own expert. The session will take place from 15.05 – 15.50 (CET) and Doug will be joined by moderator Sophie Nappert, Independent Arbitrator, 3 Verulam Buildings.
About the ICC Institute Annual Conference
The pandemic forced us into confinement. However, our arbitration work had to continue and thus we discovered working remotely. Through the ingenious use of technology, we realised that all of our constant travelling and face-to-face meetings were in fact not so essential. From our office, and at the height of the pandemic from our own home, we have come to discover that we are more efficient in this new, virtual world. Indeed, the world of arbitration flourishes without the need for the so-called arbitration tourism that made us waste our lives at airports, hotels and exhausting meeting rooms. And whilst we were increasing the efficiency of our work, we were also questioning the very way in which we had been carrying out arbitration proceedings, questioning the very basis of international arbitration. We were Rethinking the Paradigms of International Arbitration.
