Christopher Harris KC to speak at Franco-British Lawyers Society’s Role of the Judge in International Arbitration event

On Thursday 1 December, Christopher Harris KC will be speaking at Franco-British Lawyers Society’s ‘Role of the Judge in International Arbitration’ event, which will take place at Pinsent Masons London offices.

At this event, you will hear from a distinguished panel of speakers comprising judges, arbitrators, academics, and counsel acting on both sides of the Channel, where they will seek to offer comparative perspectives on issues including:

  • Should parties involved in arbitration proceedings be more mindful of the judiciary?
  • Are the parties sufficiently aware of the support that the judiciary can offer in parallel to the arbitration proceedings? Do they leverage that support and those opportunities as much as they could?
  • On the other side of the spectrum, should parties be more mindful of the court’s supervision of the arbitral process, and of the risk it can trigger with respect to the viability/effectiveness of that process?
  • Should judges be regarded as helpful to, or in conflict with, the arbitrators and the arbitral proceedings?
