Central to the book s purpose is the procedural challenge facing arbitrators at each and every stage of the arbitral process when fairness arguments conflict with efficiency concerns and trade-offs must be determined. Some key themes include how can a tribunal be fair, and in particular be neutral, if parties are so diverse? How can arbitration be made efficient and cost-effective without undue inroads into fairness and accuracy? How does a tribunal do what is best if the parties are choosing a suboptimal process? When can or must an arbitrator ignore procedural choices made by the parties? The author thoroughly evaluates competing arguments and adds his own practical tips, expertly synthesizing and engaging with the conference literature and differing authors views. He identifies criteria that offer a harmonized approach to each stage of the arbitral process, with particular attention to such aspects of international arbitration as: appropriate trade-offs between flexibility and certainty; the rights, duties and powers of arbitrators; appointment and challenge of arbitrators; responses to guerilla tactics; drafting of arbitration agreements, including specialty clauses; drafting of required commencement notices and response documents; set-off; fast track arbitration and other efficiency options; strategic use of preliminary conferences and timetabling; online arbitration; multi-party, multi-contract, class arbitration; amicus and third party funders; pre-arbitral referees and interim relief; witness evidence, both factual and expert; documentary evidence, production obligations, and challenges to production; identifying applicable law; and remedies and costs."

The IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Commercial Arbitration were adopted by the International Bar Association (IBA) Council in June 1999. A revised version entered into effect in May 2010. Both the original Rules and the revision were prepared by working groups representing the major Anglo-American and Continental legal systems and reflect a harmonization of the evidence taking procedures commonly used in international arbitration. After 12 years of being in force, the IBA Rules have found widespread acceptance in the arbitration community. With this first comprehensive commentary on the IBA Rules, the book's contributions provide an overview on the case law and doctrine, with a special focus on Swiss arbitration law and current hot topics, such as legal privilege and the efficiency of proceedings.

The IBA Rules are the most common feature of international arbitration around the world, yet so far little work has been done exploring the Rules themselves. In this practical guide, Peter Ashford combines a detailed discussion of the Rules and the commentary from the Drafting Committee with a tabular view of the interaction between the Rules and those of the main arbitration institutions. Written by a respected and experienced arbitration practitioner, the guide conveniently brings into one place materials that will assist in the practical application of the IBA Rules. This contribution to an under-covered area of international arbitration provides an invaluable handbook for arbitration practitioners in law firms, chambers, and general or in-house counsel in large corporations.

International arbitration faces the challenge of the exponential increase in the volume of electronically stored information. While there has been a convergence in the accepted scope of disclosure in international arbitration (chiefly reflected in the IBA Rules on Evidence) there is widespread concern about the potential burdens of disclosure of electronic documents, with regard to the litigation experience. Arbitrators are rapidly having to come to terms with these issues in an arbitration context, in order to meet the needs and expectations of the parties. A number of arbitration institutions are currently considering rule changes or protocols to address the disclosure of electronic documents. This publication analyses the procedural, practical and technical issues and addresses the appropriate approach to electronic disclosure in international arbitration, including those lessons and principles that can usefully be adapted from the litigation experience. Contributors include leading arbitrators, arbitration counsel, in-house counsel and IT experts, including leading experts in the field of electronic data management.

This book aims to honour the work of Professor Mirjan Damaška, Sterling Professor of Law at Yale Law School and a prominent authority for many years in the fields of comparative law, procedural law, evidence, international criminal law and Continental legal history. Professor Damaška 's work is renowned for providing new frameworks for understanding different legal traditions. To celebrate the depth and richness of his work and discuss its implications for the future, the editors have brought together an impressive range of leading scholars from different jurisdictions in the fields of comparative and international law, evidence and criminal law and procedure. Using Professor Damaška's work as a backdrop, the essays make a substantial contribution to the development of comparative law, procedure and evidence. After an introduction by the editors and a tribute by Harold Koh, Dean of Yale Law School, the book is divided into four parts. The first part considers contemporary trends in national criminal procedure, examining cross-fertilisation and the extent to which these trends are resulting in converging practices across national jurisdictions. The second part explores the epistemological environment of rules of evidence and procedure. The third part analyses human rights standards and the phenomenon of hybridisation in transnational and international criminal law. The final part of the book assesses Professor Damaška 's contribution to comparative law and the challenges faced by comparative law in the twenty first century.
