14.00: Session three: It’s advocacy, Jim, but not as we know it

_x000D_

In US litigation, the trial is “the moment”. In international arbitration, the hearing is…well, a bit less than that. It’s a moment of importance, certainly. But because more details of the case are submitted in advance in writing – witness statements, case memorials etc – over several rounds, the hearing doesn’t stand out quite so much. It’s just the latest in a series of moments that the parties have to influence the tribunal. Together, those moments add up to the playing field on which the advocates joust. So how do you make the most of them?

_x000D_

In this panel, leading names will share their collective wisdom on the art of advocacy in international arbitration. Questions they’re expected to discuss include:
