SVAMC Panelists Debate Hot Issues Involving Technology Arbitrations

Program Host: Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center
When: Thursday, November 18, 2021
3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The Prague Rules on the Efficient Conduct of Proceedings in International Arbitration and the publication of arbitration awards by administering organizations are two hot topics in international arbitration.   World-class neutrals in the high technology area will discuss these issues as they apply to technology arbitrations.

The presentation will consist of two debates.  The first panel will debate the proposition “Resolved: The Prague Rules Contain Approaches to Experts and the Role of Arbitrators that are Better for Arbitrating Technology Disputes than the IBA Rules of Evidence.”  The second panel will debate the proposition “Resolved: Publication of Arbitration Awards by Administrating Organizations is Beneficial to the Arbitration of Technology Disputes.”

A request for CLE credit is pending for NY.  To receive credit, please record the codes that will be displayed on the screen during the program and submit the CLE form (linked below) and evaluation. You must provide your state bar/ARDC number in order to receive credit.
