Vis East Moot Appeals for Arbitrators
With 100 teams this year, the Vis East Arbitration Moot in Hong Kong is more popular than ever, but that means we are in great need of arbitrators. Many of our regular professionals will opt to attend ICCA in Miami instead of travelling to Hong Kong, so there is a pressing need for volunteers.
If you are a licensed lawyer and work in arbitration, either as counsel, in house, or as an arbitrator, you are most welcome to join us from March 31 to April 6.
You can register by downloading the Arbitrator Registration Form from the Vis East website: www.cisgmoot.org
and sending it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is your chance for a unique educational and networking experience, and to help the next generation of arbitration counsel hone their skills. Come once to Vis East and you'll be "hooked"!

Paperless Arbitrations – Where Do We Stand?
Technology in arbitration is of course a vast subject which has been addressed extensively by a number of writers. This article focuses briefly on the issue of reducing paper in arbitrations. It considers: How are practitioners currently dealing with paper reduction at the various stages of an arbitration, especially the hearing ? (Although discovery can consume significant amounts of paper, it merits its own consideration and is not therefore addressed in this article.) Are any facilities, rules and/or guidance available on the subject? Are there any drawbacks to using technology to cut down on paper? What is the way forward?

Happy Anniversary: ArbitralWomen was founded Twenty years ago, on 22 November 1993.
Today we are a thousand strong, from all parts of the globe
. We can be proud of our work in promoting women in dispute resolution through events, social gatherings, mentoring, and awards to assist women law students to participate at the Vis Moots in Vienna and Hong Kong.
In twenty years, we have made a great deal of progress, with women leading many arbitration commissions, serving as arbitrators and mediators, and taking a more visible role in the leadership of the arbitration community. But women are still sadly under-represented as lead counsel in arbitrations, on arbitrator rosters, and as panel members in high-value, high-profile cases. There is still much work to be done if women are to achieve equal status with men in this field.
If you are a woman and are not yet a member, please do consider joining us. You can read about the benefits of membership in ArbitralWomen on the website, and it is now easier than ever to join online. Just click now on Become a Member to share with us the progress of the next 20 years!
