Unilaterally Appointed Arbitrators - A Good Idea?

Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor Jan Paulsson, Alexis Mourre

Recorded on 24 November 2010 in New Theatre, East Building.

Jan Paulsson's recent paper on "Moral Hazard in International Arbitration" questioning the usefulness of having parties themselves appoint "their" arbitrators has stirred much controversy and will be challenged at this event by Alexis Mourre. Prof. Paulsson is Centennial Professor of Law at LSE, co-head of the international arbitration practice of Freshfields LLP and one of the world's leading arbitrators. Alexis Mourre is partner at Castaldi Mourre & Partners in Paris and a leading French specialist in international arbitration.
