Swedish Arbitration Days 2018: Advocacy in International Arbitration, September 6-7

The Swedish Arbitration Association warmly welcomes you to the Swedish Arbitration Days 2018 to be held on 6–7 September 2018 in Stockholm. Ukrainian Arbitration Association is an info partner of the event.

While the building blocks of a case are often a given, they seldom dictate the outcome of an arbitration. Instead, the proceedings signify a journey of strategic choices made from the commencement of the proceedings until the delivery of closing arguments as the client's case is presented to the arbitral tribunal in the most optimal manner. In this process, the advocate acts as both the architect and constructor when building a case that stands steadily on its foundations and, in the end, holds the most appeal for the arbitral tribunal.

In 2018, the Swedish Arbitration Days will focus on Advocacy in International Arbitration. Panels comprising some of the world's most prominent international arbitration practitioners will share their experiences of advocacy at all stages of an arbitration and discuss the following questions:

  • Do certain best practices exist in written advocacy and how should they be used?
  • How do you master the art of examining witnesses and deal with any potential surprises?
  • When you have the opportunity to address the tribunal, how do you choose what to focus on, and how can different styles of oral advocacy be used to deliver the message?

An early bird rate of SEK 7,000 applies for registrations made by 30 June 2018 (ordinary rate SEK 8,000).

In connection with the Swedish Arbitration Days, various organizations will arrange events related to the conference. For the full program of the conference and more information, please click here.
