The CIArb (Singapore Branch) Competition 2018

09.10.2018 The Prague Rules have been already chosen by CIArb as a part of the problem for The CIArb (Singapore Branch) Competition for 2018!

The CIArb (Singapore Branch) Competition for 2018 concerns a culture clash between common and civil law procedures and the different approaches to taking evidence in international arbitration in the two legal systems.

What procedural directions should a tribunal make when parties from civil and common law jurisdictions contend for the adoption of either the IBA Rules or the Prague Rules?

Competitors must submit:
(1) a draft procedural order for discussion with your co-arbitrators; and
(2) an explanatory note that sets out the reasoning for making your order.
