The event is now at its full capacity. Thank you for your interest in registering for ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar.

The Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA), in collaboration with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) is organising the second Asia edition of the ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar following the successful edition in Da Nang, Vietnam in 2019.

The ASA Arbitration Practice Seminar is based on a format that was originally developed by ASA in 1997 and that has since been followed in annual seminars hosted by ASA in cooperation with other arbitration associations and institutions in Europe and Asia.

In a series of sessions that take place over the course of two days and that follow the key phases of an arbitration proceeding, two discussion leaders – one with a civil and one with a common law background – raise and engage with participants on key legal and practical issues that might arise in the life of an arbitration. The discussion leaders are highly experienced practitioners, who draw on examples from actual past cases to illustrate these issues and different ways in which they might be addressed. What results is a lively debate among discussion leaders and participants that is designed to highlight the diversity of experiences and approaches in international arbitration, foster the exchange on and development of novel ideas and practices, and encourage cross-cultural sensitivity.

The language of the seminar is English.

Who should attend?

This is not a seminar for true beginners. It is designed for those who wish to continue building on their international arbitration knowledge and practice and to benefit from the discussion leaders' combined experience and expertise, acquired in a great variety of arbitration proceedings in different jurisdictions. Participants themselves contribute to the debate with their own experience, questions and ideas.
