Recent Developments in International Arbitration: Implications for Australia and Beyond

April 15th, 2021

On 30 March 2021, CIArb Australia and the Federal Court of Australia held their first webinar for 2021. The panellists considered the Australian implications of two recent judgments by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in Enka Insaat v Chubb (the choice of law principles applicable to an arbitration agreement and when an express or implied choice of law has been made) and Halliburton v Chubb (concerning an arbitrator’s duty of disclosure when an arbitrator accepts multiple appointments in cases that have a common sub-stratum of facts and the intersection of that duty with the duty of confidentiality and removal of an arbitrator for lack of impartiality or apparent bias).

We are pleased to be able to offer a recording of the webinar for your viewing. You can view the webinar by clicking on the link below.
