SCC on China Roadshow
Between 12-16 October, SCC Deputy Secretary General Kristin Campbell-Wilson will travel around China together with Setterwalls Law Firm and CIETAC. The delegation will host seminars and lectures in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
Local law firms and practitioners in three Chinese cities are invited to the half-day seminars arranged by the delegation on the topic “Swedish and Chinese Arbitration: Arbitration under the SCC and CIETAC Rules from the institutions’ and lawyers’ perspectives”.
Together with Deputy Secretary General Campbell-Wilson, speakers will be Johan Karlbom, Emma Fredberg and Junli Shu from Setterwalls Law Firm, and representatives from CIETAC and local Chinese law firms. Separate lectures will also be held by the SCC and Setterwalls with students at the China University of Political Science and Law and University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.
The China-SCC relation goes back a long time, and between 2013 and 2014, 5% of the SCC cases (10% not counting the Swedish cases) included at least one Chinese party.
