The Future of Commercial Dispute Resolution

  • What could you learn now that will develop and expand your commercial dispute resolution practice?
With the pace of civil procedure reform increasing and the International Council for Commercial Arbitration taking place in Scotland in 2020, now is a timely opportunity for all commercial litigators in Scotland to learn about the latest developments in the courts and future court reforms and to explore alternative dispute resolution. We will welcome the Lord President to give the opening keynote covering an overview of the current Scottish commercial dispute landscape.

  • How is practice in the civil courts changing and what does the future hold for civil litigation in Scotland?
The Scottish Civil Justice Council and its Committees have been working hard on court reform.  We will examine current, imminent and future changes in the practice of commercial litigation.

  • How can your practice benefit now by adopting expertise and exploring the opportunities ICCA 2020 will bring?
We will explore the solicitor’s duty to understand and advise the best ways to resolve disputes, which must include latest knowledge and appraisal of different forms. We will explore alternative resolution forums and models; and the long-term commercial dispute innovations and practice development opportunities to be gained.

  • How is technology going to impact upon commercial dispute resolution practice?
We will examine how technology is going to change they way disputes are resolved, including a look at artificial intelligence solutions and other aids to the dispute and settlement processes.

We will bring together a wide variety of litigation practitioners to cover many areas in commercial dispute resolution. Book now to join peers and colleagues to gain the latest update for 2019 and beyond.
