Course Outline:

The Hong Kong SAR Government has attempted to promote Hong Kong as an international arbitration centre in recently years.  Coupled with such attempt, the law of arbitration in Hong Kong has undergone a major revision through the enactment of a new Arbitration Ordinance (Cap. 609) for replacement of the old Arbitration Ordinance (Cap. 314) which was passed in 1963 by mirroring that of the English Arbitration Act 1950.

The objective of this CPD seminar is twofold.  Firstly, it aims at explaining some of the more important features of this legislation with a focus on those related to arbitral proceedings.  Secondly, it aims at providing a case update through review of the more important judicial cases decided since this legislation becomes effective on 1st June 2011.

It will be suitable for those who have a basic understanding of arbitration law and practice but who want to update themselves with the new legislation and the latest judicial decisions.  It will be of interest to anyone who is involved or interested in arbitration.
