LCIA Arbitration Rules Update (2020)
Effective from 1 October 2020
The London Court of International Arbitration has published an updated set of rules which will come into effect from 1 October 2020. Rules have been “modernised” with more plain English drafting and a recognition that electronic submissions, communications as well as virtual hearings will be the new norm now and post COVID-19 pandemic. The rule change will retain the flexibility associated with arbitration whilst giving a tribunal the widest discretion in terms of procedure including shortening timescales, limiting evidence, restricting pleadings and the adoption of new technologies of the future.
