Course Outline:

China's rise as an economic superpower has been accompanied by a desire to become an international dispute resolution hub.  Naturally, China's arbitration infrastructure forms an important part of this strategy which has sought to rapidly develop in recent years.

The emergence of international commercial courts, increased caseloads for Chinese arbitral institutions, alongside proposed amendments to China's arbitration law, all point to a country that is serious about developing its legal system to make itself more arbitration friendly.

In this lecture, participants will learn about some of the key features of China's arbitration law alongside the context in which it was formulated.  The lecture will also cover significant developments in Chinese arbitration in recent years.

By the end of the lecture, participants will be able to appreciate the complexity of China's arbitration system, in addition to understanding some of the main issues parties must consider when choosing to arbitrate their disputes in Mainland China.

The Lecture will Cover the Following:

  • Salient Features of China's Arbitration Law
  • The Role of Arbitral Institutions in Mainland China
  • Enforcing Arbitral Awards in Mainland China
  • Proposed Amendments to China's Arbitration Law
  • Obstacles to Reform
  • Common Misconceptions
