Speakers Corner

The ‘Speakers’ Corner’ segment features interviews with General Counsels and other participants in the arbitration process, selected by the CEO and Editor of Newton Arbitration.

Featured speakers will present their observations on the use of arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism with regard to their field of practice and/or industry sector. Interviews will discuss issues relevant to the arbitration process.

Arbitration Services

Conferences will be live streamed on the Newton Arbitration platform and will be available for viewing (session by session) on the day of the event. The conference will then be permanently archived on the platform. The video will then be archived under the ‘Video Archive’ section found under the ‘Menu’.

Livestreaming International Arbitration Conferences:

One of Newton Arbitration’s key features is the livestreaming of international arbitration conferences and seminars. In this regard, Newton Arbitration will livestream the entirety of the conference or seminar proceedings and archive such conference or seminar on the Newton Arbitration platform for subsequent “on-demand” viewing. Note, each conference will have an agenda attached to the event page prior to the start of the event, so that the viewer may familiarize themselves with the sessions.

Video Archive:

Under the ‘Video Archive’, Users of the Newton Arbitration platform can find all arbitration related media content, including all Newton Arbitration livestreamed events.

Transcription Services:

The feature “Transcription Services” includes a listing of entities that provide transcription services for the arbitration process.

E-Discovery Services::

The feature “E-Discovery Services” includes a listing of entities that provide e-discovery services in regard to arbitration. By way of example, an arbitral tribunal may require each party to an arbitration to provide to the other party “all relevant documents”. Depending upon the circumstances, compliance with such request may involve a substantial amount of work, especially if multiple email addresses are referred to in the document production request. Consequently, under certain circumstances, a party to an arbitration may wish to select an entity that provides e-discovery services.

Arbitration Publications:

The feature “Arbitration Publications” includes books and periodicals on international arbitration, as well as other written and audio-visual content.
