Dr Reynolds will discuss the importance of independence and impartiality as the most salient characteristics of an arbitrator. This is a prerequisite to performing the judicial function. In examining its application in practice, Dr Reynolds will discuss some leading cases, ethical considerations embodied in institutional rules and why observance is so important today.
Dr Reynolds, a solicitor, chartered arbitrator and researcher in international arbitration, has considerable experience of litigation, arbitration, enquiries and international tribunals. He is the author of several professional practice books and numerous articles having formerly been a member of the Editorial Board of Arbitration and then Commissioning Editor of Construction and Engineering Law. His latest contributions to Amicus Curiae concern the invention of case management 70 years before the Civil Justice Reforms. His latest book, to be published in March 2021, is about how diplomats, arbitrators and lawyers resolved issues between sovereign states.
The talk will suit both arbitrators and those involved in arbitration. It will appeal to experienced arbitrators and newcomers in this form of dispute resolution now and in the future.
