Prague Rules Will Be Officially Launched on 14th of December 2018

Join the momentous event in arbitration history!

The Prague Rules were created to increase the efficiency of arbitral proceedings by encouraging tribunals to take a more active role in managing the proceedings. From the very first drafts elaborated by the Working group, Prague Rules were in spotlight of many debates and discussions and soon, in the very end of 2018, they will be officially launched to serve their purpose!

According to the UAA Board decision of 17 October 2018 UAA will join the list of the Prague Rules supporting organizations and will sign them in Prague.

Official Launch of Prague Rules in cooperation with Global Arbitration Review will take place on 14 December 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic, Martinický palác, Hradčanské náměstí 67/8.

The main themes for discussion during the event will be:

  • Horses for courses: common law vs. civil law procedure in international arbitration
  • Is the sky the only limit? Discovery and e-discovery in arbitration.
  • Lie to me. Fact witnesses vs. documentary evidence: can a paper lie?
  • How much do loaded guns contribute to the truth? Party appointed vs. tribunal appointed experts.
