Overview

ICC Dossiers Volume 2

Arbitration and Oral Evidence, prepared by the ICC Institute of World Business Law, addressed some of the most contentious issues in arbitration procedures.

The relationship of written testimony to oral presentation of evidence raises a number of opportunities for abuse. From misleading witness statements to the preparation of unreliable and slanted presentations of experts, the issues raised have divided counsel and arbitrators.

This volume, containing papers from distinguished practitioners and arbitrators, provides a balanced and objective view of the problems – and solutions – leading to good general practices that can encourage both fairness and efficiency in the receipt of oral testimony.

The ICC Institute of World Business Law brings together the finest legal minds to strengthen links between international business practitioners and the legal profession. The Institute’s ‘Dossiers’ is a series that has gained international prestige. These Dossiers are the outcome of the Institute’s annual meetings, where experts from around the globe come together to discuss salient issues of international commercial law and arbitration.

An ICC Services publication, distributed by Kluwer Law International.
