Join the launch of the latest ICC Commission Report “The Accuracy of Fact Witness Memory in International Arbitration: Current Issues and Possible Solutions.” The quality of this Report in a difficult field such as the probative value of witness evidence in arbitration demonstrate that the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR continues to play a leading role by continuing to address complex issues in an in-depth and innovative manner.

The ICC created a Task Force whose mandate was to look at current practices for the preparation and presentation of fact witness evidence in international arbitration and examine whether these practices are themselves potentially corrupting the very evidence that arbitral tribunals rely upon for the fair resolution of disputes. The Report examines the science of human memory and considers whether there are modifications that could be made to current practices, or alternative approaches that could be adopted, in order maximise the accuracy of fact witness evidence in international arbitration.

The Report will be presented by the Leadership of the Task Force with special guests Toby Landau QC, Dr Kimberley Wade, Dr Ula Cartwright-Finch and Susanne Gropp-Stadler.

The event is free of charge, for more information and to register see here.
