UIA - Copenhagen Seminar (Denmark), April 8, 2011


The UIA is proud to present its Copenhagen seminar on “Current Hot Topics in International Arbitration”.

This seminar is organised with the support of the Danish Arbitration Association.
The programme is now available on our website and online registration is open.

International arbitration is constantly evolving and this seminar aims to help practitioners and users of arbitration alike to consider several recent developments that could have far-reaching effects on the way in which arbitration is practised.

The seminar will be divided into four sessions. The first will deal with the question of enforcement: How far can the enforcement court reopen the findings of the arbitral tribunal? How far should it defer to the tribunal’s findings? How can a party that unsuccessfully challenged the jurisdiction of the arbitral tribunal do so again before the enforcement court?

The second and third sessions will deal with different ways in which the European Union has an effect on arbitration, namely with the very important topic of arbitration under investment treaties and with the often vexed relationship between Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (the Brussels I Regulation) and international arbitration.

The fourth session will focus on Scandinavia and the considerable contribution its constituent countries have made to the development of international arbitration. We have practitioners from Denmark, Sweden and Finland to discuss this topic and the central role played by the Scandinavian jurisdictions in international arbitration.

After each session there will be an ample opportunity for questions and discussion between members of the audience and the panellists. There will be plenty of scope for provocative and stimulating debate.

The seminar is a one day event, and in the best UIA tradition, the participants are offered the opportunity to get together on the evening of the day before (Thursday January 27) for the welcome cocktail, hosted by the Danish Bar and Law Society, the Association of Danish Law Firms, the Danish Institute of Arbitration and the Danish Arbitration Association.

The seminar will be held in English, without simultaneous translation.

The seminar will allow participants to establish new valuable contacts as well as to visit and discover Copenhagen.

Join us in Copenhagen: we look forward to welcoming you there!
