Presented by Young ITA

Parties are increasingly desirous of pursuing efficient and effective dispute resolution solutions, more so in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, also with the aim of preserving or even improving commercial relationships and achieving larger business goals. While arbitration remains an attractive option, other mechanisms such as mediation, conciliation and expert determination, are being viewed as viable options by parties, counsel and institutions. This is reinforced by recent developments, such as the advent of the Singapore Convention and other efforts to find innovative dispute resolution solutions, such as by the UNCITRAL WG II.

In this event, the Young ITA’s regional chairs for Asia and India will highlight these developments as well as present India’s and Japan’s roles and latest practices in this regard. We will also discuss how Japan’s and India’s cultural and legal traditions have influenced their legal practices and outlook on dispute resolution, and discuss whether, and if yes, how, different dispute resolution mechanisms can harmoniously co-exist and be utilised in conjunction, when appropriate, to resolve disputes.

#YoungITATalks is a series of virtual events presented around the world, featuring talks, workshops or interviews that cover a wide range of subjects relating to arbitration. The #YoungITATalks series is designed for education, conversation and sharing knowledge and experiences among young practitioners.

This event is presented tuition-free.
