Young-OGEMID's third virtual symposium covered a variety of topics relating to evidence in international arbitration. In introducing the event, YO moderator Professor S.I. Strong cautioned that "While many aspects of international arbitration are relatively predictable and transparent, the art of taking and presenting evidence can be somewhat confusing." This set the stage for panellists from both practice and academia to provide practical and theoretical insights into the issue. Over the next ten days of dynamic online discussion, the panellists aired their views on the presentation of evidence at hearings, whether a set of principles of evidence in international arbitration existed, Redfern Schedules, and the handling of evidence issues by the International Court of Justice.
The event featured:
- Kate Brown de Vejar - Partner, Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, Mexico;
