Contact SIArb Secretariat, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
About the Webinar:
Whilst contractual claims are the bread and butter of commercial arbitration, arbitrators are also faced with non-contractual causes of action, for example in tort or delict, unjust enrichment/restitution, or in equity, which present different issues and challenges. This seminar will examine the particular issues that arise in pleading and determining non-contractual claims in commercial arbitration, including:
• Typical types of non-contractual claim in commercial arbitration;
• Jurisdiction over non-contractual claims;
• Governing law for non-contractual claims;
• Tactics, pitfalls and difficult issues arising in relation to non-contractual claims.
Webinar Programme:
Webinar participants will be able to watch and listen to (via computer audio, recommended for security reasons, or telephone line) the video presentation and Q&A discussion on their screens, as well as participate in the Q&A discussion by sending in your questions to the moderator via text using the built-in Q&A function.
