A slightly irreverent look at international arbitration as it really is: going back to its roots, how it works in practice, its drivers, strengths and weaknesses and why it is so important in the modern world. This is from the perspective of our speaker, who has been an arbitration practitioner, and now international arbitrator, for more than 40 years. By examining what actually happened in a number of real-life cases, and drawing upon his own experience, Mr. Mitchard will illustrate important strands of arbitration practice and procedure in a manner that goes beyond the exposition found in conventional textbooks on the subject.
