Electronic Disclosure in International Arbitration

Author: David J. Howell

Publisher: Juris Publishing, Inc.

ISBN: 193383322X

Category: Law

Page: 400

International arbitration faces the challenge of the exponential increase in the volume of electronically stored information. While there has been a convergence in the accepted scope of disclosure in international arbitration (chiefly reflected in the IBA Rules on Evidence) there is widespread concern about the potential burdens of disclosure of electronic documents, with regard to the litigation experience. Arbitrators are rapidly having to come to terms with these issues in an arbitration context, in order to meet the needs and expectations of the parties. A number of arbitration institutions are currently considering rule changes or protocols to address the disclosure of electronic documents. This publication analyses the procedural, practical and technical issues and addresses the appropriate approach to electronic disclosure in international arbitration, including those lessons and principles that can usefully be adapted from the litigation experience. Contributors include leading arbitrators, arbitration counsel, in-house counsel and IT experts, including leading experts in the field of electronic data management.

Antitrust Evidence Handbook

While antitrust litigation is like other litigation in many ways, it also is unique in other respects. The Antitrust Evidence Handbook, Second Edition provides practitioners with a quick reference source on evidentiary issues that arise principally, although not exclusively, in antitrust cases. This new edition updates the original Handbook published in 1991 but retains the user-friendly organization and format of the original version. It also incorporates the latest statutory and case law developments in the evidence field. The most significant development in antitrust evidence in the last decade has been the treatment of expert testimony under Daubert and its progeny, and the chapter devoted to experts has been completely rewritten to take account of these changes. Organized in outline form so topics can be located quickly and easily, this volume is published in a format that can be carried handily by counsel to court or depositions. Anyone involved in antitrust litigation will continue to find the Handbook to be a useful reference tool.
