20th International Arbitration lecture
Parallel proceedings in international arbitration: theoretical analysis and search for practical solutions

Speaker: Salim Moollan QC


About the lecture

The annual International Arbitration lecture, presented by Clayton Utz and supported by the University of Sydney Law School, brings together key figures in international arbitration and the Australian business community to explore the real issues that could affect their international operations, and how international dispute resolution can contribute to their bottom line.

2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the International Arbitration Lecture series, which continues to attract guest speakers from the four corners of the world to give their insights into the challenges facing international arbitration.

Topic
Parallel proceedings in international arbitration: theoretical analysis and search for practical solutions

Fifteen years have elapsed since the last major effort at analysing the problems arising from parallel proceedings in international arbitration and looking for solutions thereto. This lecture, which will in part be based on Mr Moollan’s recently delivered Hague Lectures on the topic, will aim to take a fresh look at this topic – folding in, inter alia, the substantial development of investment arbitration during that period and the new issues which this has given rise to.
