CIArb Canada – Debate Series: Vavilov, Value, Venue

CIArb presents three dynamic debates on issues that challenge advocates, arbitrators and academics. We will debate and perhaps even solve three pressing practical challenges:

  • Has Vavilov settled the standard of review of arbitral awards in Canada?
  • Are existing practice standards adequate to maximize the value of arbitrations, and ensure that they are efficient and cost-effective?
  • The ultimate question – what’s the better venue: Toronto or Vancouver?

Our debaters promise to blow your socks Vavil-off, cause you to re-evaluate your approach, and show you these issues from a ve-new perspective.

Moderator: Ted Frankel

Debators: James Plotkin, Tamar Meshel, Janet Walker CM, Stephanie Cohen, Christina Doria, Alexandra Mitretodis
