On 6 December 2010 in Paris, ICC Institute of World Business Law will hold a conference Is arbitration only as good as the arbitrator? Status, powers and the role of the arbitrator.
The conference will look at the relationship between the qualities of the arbitrator and the arbitrator’s “work-products”, i.e. the award and the arbitral process itself. The discussion will also consider whether parties can detach at least part of “their” arbitration from the arbitrator and the benefits, if any, of such an approach.
