Playing by the Rules: Counsel Conduct in International Arbitration. 16 October 2013. Berlin


Professional conduct rules are increasingly seen as insufficient and inadequate for controlling the conduct of counsel and their clients in international arbitration pro- ceedings. The IBA has responded to the challenge by issuing Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration. The LCIA intends to include similar rules in an Annex to its forthcoming revised Arbitration Rules. Why do we need such rules of conduct? How do national and supranational professional conduct rules and soft law instruments address the specific situations that arise in international arbitrations?

And what will be the impact of such rules on the conduct of arbitral proceedings and on the various actors?

You are kindly invited to attend the DIS40 Autumn Colloquium in Berlin, Germany’s fascinating capital, and to discuss in an interactive forum the many interesting issues arising in this respect, from the young generation’s perspective.
