Summary of Young-OGEMID Symposium No. 11: "Alternatives to In-Person Arbitration: Pandemics and Beyond (Mar 18 - 25 2020)"
Published 13 May 2020
Young-OGEMID's eleventh virtual symposium ("Symposium") was focused on the possibility of proceedings being held online. The arbitral community has been considering and - at least partially - implementing online dispute resolution for years, so as to increase efficiency, save costs and address the environmental impacts associated especially with long-distance travel. However, the real push appears to have come with the COVID-19 pandemic. The panellists covered a range of diverse topics, from real life experience to implications of the current situation on mooting competitions, while Prof. S.I. Strong acted as moderator.
- Prof. Ben Davis (University of Toledo)
- Colin Rule (Tyler Tech)
- Chris Campbell (Center for International Legal Studies, CILS)
- Paul Cohen (4-5 Gray's Inn Square)
- Ian Macduff (University of Auckland and National Centre for Technology and Dispute Resolution)
