The Role of the Judge in International Arbitration

Judges and Arbitrators: l’Entente Cordiale? 

Comparative perspectives

Thursday 1 December at 6pm

 In person at Pinsent Masons, 30 Crown Place, Earl Street, London EC2A 4ES, and online


This event will seek to offer comparative perspectives on issues including:

  • Should parties involved in arbitration proceedings be more mindful of the judiciary?
  • Are the parties sufficiently aware of the support that the judiciary can offer in parallel to the arbitration proceedings? Do they leverage that support and those opportunities as much as they could?
  • On the other side of the spectrum, should parties be more mindful of the court’s supervision of the arbitral process, and of the risk it can trigger with respect to the viability/effectiveness of that process?
  • Should judges be regarded as helpful to, or in conflict with, the arbitrators and the arbitral proceedings?

We will hear from a distinguished panel of speakers comprising judges, arbitrators, academics, and counsel (Barristers and/or Avocats) acting on both sides of the Channel

The Rt. Hon. Dame Elizabeth Gloster DBE, PC, a former Judge at the Court of Appeal and now a full-time international arbitrator
