The International Law Students Association is a non-profit association of students and lawyers who are dedicated to the promotion of international law. ILSA provides students with opportunity to study, research, and network in the international legal arena. The organization's activities include academic conferences, publications, the global coordination of student organizations, and the administration of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
Now in its 20th year, and following the repeated success of this event, the annual Arbitration Day has become a must attend event for lawyers in private practice, government and public bodies, in-house counsel, executives involved in international business activities, and academics with an interest in international arbitration.
The main idea of this conference is to study the impact on the gathering and weighing of evidence in international arbitration when related proceedings are simultaneously pending. These related proceedings may take place before criminal courts or regulatory authorities (banking, competition). The powers of prosecutors, judges and regulatory authority may significantly differ from that of the arbitrators, when it comes to having access to evidence, assessing it or determining whether the burden of proof has been satisfactorily discharged.
