EU Law & Arbitration - An Introduction to Procedure & Practice with Philip Clifford QC
This introductory level webinar will explore the interaction between EU law and arbitration from a procedural perspective and then look at how to use substantive EU law in arbitration proceedings.
The webinar is aimed at commercial litigators.
What You Will Learn
This webinar will cover the following:
- How EU law has, as part of its aims, increased harmonisation and co-operation between member states in relation to civil and commercial justice
- How the Brussels Regulation regulates how the courts of member states deal with court litigation in relation to arbitration (meaning that injunctions from one member state court restraining parties from going to court in relation to arbitration proceedings in another member state court were deemed inconsistent with EU law)
- How procedural issues have developed from the Brussels Regulation to the Recast Brussels Regulation
- The sources of EU law and the manner in which they directly impact individuals / corporates domiciled in a member state
- How national laws (whether incorporated by contract or otherwise) can also oblige individuals / corporates to comply with EU law
- The likely areas of EU law which (whether directly or indirectly) might give rise to causes of action in an arbitration context
- The way in which EU law might arise in the context of enforcement of an arbitral award, even if EU law had not formed part of the arbitration itself
This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Wednesday 11th December 2019 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
