Breaking the mould – new approaches to evidence in the digital age

Wednesday 12 May 2021 | 12:00 - 13:00 (BST)


Shaheed Fatima QC (co-chair), Barrister, Blackstone; Professor Eduardo Zuleta (co-chair), Zuleta Legal; Chris Bushell, Partner, Herbert Smiths Freehills; Timothy St. J. Ellam QC, Partner, McCarthy Tétrault; Vladimir Khvalei, Partner, Baker McKenzie; Matthew Marsh, Arbitrator and Mediator.

What the session will cover

This session will consider the use of evidence in international dispute resolution – from the Disclosure Pilot Scheme in the English Business and Property Courts and the review and use of witness statements in litigation, to the Prague Rules and whether they have been adopted by many during arbitration and, if so, to what extent, or whether practitioners still prefer the use of the IBA Rules and, if so, why. The session will consider these topics by drawing particular attention to the digital world (i.e. virtual hearings, virtual examinations/cross-examinations) and will evaluate the various weapons available in the dispute practitioners’ arsenal while preparing evidence.
