National Conference on Effects & Implications of Recent ADR / Commercial Courts Laws


ASSOCHAM International Council of Alternate Dispute Resolution is going to organize the National Conference on Effects & Implications of Recent ADR / Commercial Courts Laws.

Date: 5th April, 2016
Venue: Hotel Shangri-La, New Delhi

On 23rd December, 2015 Rajya Sabha and on 16th / 17th December, 2015 Lok Sabha passed two important Bills on (1) the Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Bill, 2015, and (2) The Commercial Courts, Commercial Division & Commercial Appellate Division of High Courts Bill, 2015, which were earlier promulgated as Ordinance by the Hon’ble President of India. Both these Bills are set to revolutionize the resolution of commercial disputes in India.

It is hoped that this will bring a radical change in the image of India which has been infamous for having a heavily overburdened legal system that leads to indefinite delays in the disposal of court cases. Inefficiencies in its legal infrastructure have made it all the more difficult for foreign as well as domestic large investors to protect their investments in India.

Truly, the amended Arbitration and Conciliation Bill & the establishment of the Commercial Courts together would bring a revolution in the speedier resolution of the commercial disputes in India. Both bills reflect commitment of the Government to improve investment climate and spur economic growth. Now India can seek a place as the new arbitration hub of the world after London and Singapore. Hence, it is essential to know their key provisions and its effectiveness.

To discuss effects and implications of amended Arbitration & Conciliation Bill and establishment of Commercial Courts, ASSOCHAM International Council of Alternate Dispute Resolution (AICADR) is organizing one day ‘National Conference on ‘Effects & Implications of Recent Amended ADR / Commercial Courts Laws’ on Tuesday, the 5th April, 2016 at Hotel Shangri-La, New Delhi.
