Ethically Challenged or the Challenge of Ethics? The Emergence of Codes of Conduct and Ethics in International Arbitration

4 March 2015
Organizer: LCIA

Debevoise & Plimpton, New York City

In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in how parties and counsel conduct themselves in international arbitration. Powerful voices have warned that if the arbitration community does not effectively regulate itself then regulation will be imposed. Responses to this challenge have included explicit provisions in the LCIA Arbitration Rules, guidelines promulgated by the International Bar Association, proposals for a global ethics tribunal, admonitions to behave more responsibly—and vocal opposition to doing anything at all.

What’s your view? Here’s your chance to weigh in on the debate by joining us for this very special evening event, which brings together some of the global thought leaders on this vital topic that could transform arbitral practice.
