The Centre for Advanced Research & Training in Arbitration Law (CARTAL) at National Law University, Jodhpur is going to conduct the Gary B. Born National Essay Writing Competition on International Arbitration, 2016.
About the Essay Competition:
With the increasing use of Arbitration, especially in the sphere of commercial dispute resolution, it is but only apt and timely to encourage research and study in this area. As a wholly consensual dispute resolution mechanism, distinct from the public justice system embodied by national courts and most often shrouded by confidentiality, arbitration is been rightly described as a privatised system of law.
Therefore, its use in addressing claims arising from investment disputes, that with more often not, necessarily involve public law issues, has been continually seen with suspicion. However, this suspicion has not marred its popularity and in fact, it is this that led to Mr. Born and his team at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, proposing the Bilateral Arbitration Treaty – “BAT”.
The focus of this proposal is on bilateral treaties which would provide for international arbitration, under the UNCITRAL Rules, as a default mechanism for resolution of international commercial disputes between corporate parties. This competition seeks to encourage law students to study the feasibility of the BAT Model, and address continuing concerns of the desirability of arbitration of public law claims, and whether the UNCITRAL Model Law can thereby be re-amended, keeping in mind the developments of the last decade.
The competition has the gracious support and patronage of Mr. Gary B. Born himself, who is currently also the President of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre’s Court of Arbitration and an expert in international arbitration in his own right, having participated in more than 600 international arbitrations, including four of the largest ICC arbitrations and several of the most significant ad hoc arbitrations in recent history. He is consistently ranked as one of the leading practitioners in the field. He is also one of the only three lawyers in the world to hold the global “starred” status in Chambers’ rankings.
Rules of the Competition:
The last date for submission is 31st July, 2016 by 23:55hrs
