Greetings from CADR! 

We are elated to announce that the Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR), RGNUL in association with the Beihai Asia International Arbitration Centre (BAIAC), Singapore is bringing to you an Assignment-Based Workshop on the topic “Importance of Seat of Arbitration.” The workshop is being conducted with a goal to deeply delve into the concept of seat of an arbitration and understand both, its theoretical and practical framework. The workshop aims to cover:

  1. Legal connotations attached with a seat of arbitration – The session aims to cover the legal implications and consequences of selecting a place as their seat of arbitration and the different considerations that parties go through before selecting a seat will also be discussed.
  2. Difference between a ‘venue’ and a ‘seat’ – Though used interchangeably by laymen, there lies a huge difference between the two terms and the session aims to elaborate upon this distinction in detail.
  3. Central role of a seat while framing an arbitration agreement – With arbitration becoming mainstream and a preferred mode of dispute resolution for big businesses, it has come to light that deciding a good arbitration seat forms a major point to ponder while framing an arbitration agreement, hence, the key role of seat in this regard will also be discussed.
