ICCYAF Programme

Hosted by Pestalozzi
Zurich, 5 December 2014
Free of charge
Event description
Cross-examination in international arbitration is a highly practical topic for young arbitration practitioners who have
to be accustomed to the use of cross-examination even if they come from jurisdictions where cross-examination is
unknown in state court litigation. This event will bring together leading authorities and young practitioners with
different legal and cultural backgrounds to discuss how cross-examination is used in international arbitrations
seated in the jurisdictions they practice in and to see whether standardized procedures have been developed or
whether significantly different blends of cross-examination exist.
The seminar will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to
enrich their network in the region. After the conference, participants are invited to a reception at a nearby bar or club
to continue discussions and to network. The place will be named at the event.
