Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is the first text of its kind to examine the most prevalent and controversial procedural issues that arise in investment arbitrations conducted under the ICSID, UNCITRAL, and other arbitral rules. Written by international arbitration experts, the book takes the reader through an investment arbitration in chronological order, identifying each key procedural issue in turn and providing details of the relevant precedents. It charts the process of an arbitration from applicable law and first sessions right through to post-hearing applications and costs.

The book launch will feature a panel discussion with Andrea Bjorklund (Full Professor, McGill University, Faculty of Law), the Honourable Joseph R. Nuss, Q.C. (Independent Arbitrator, Arbitration Place; Senior Counsel, Woods LLP), Martin Valasek (Partner, Head of International Arbitration, Canada, Norton Rose Fulbright), Caroline Richard (Partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer) and Jeffery Commission (Director, Burford Capital).

A cocktail will follow, courtesy of Burford Capital.
