Joint FAI/SCC seminar in Helsinki
On March 8, more than 80 participants attended a morning seminar in Helsinki, jointly organized by the SCC and the Finland Arbitration Institute (FAI).
The SCC was represented by Secretary General Annette Magnusson and Legal Counsel Anja Havedal Ipp. In their presentations, they focused primarily on new and updated features of the revised SCC Rules, which entered into force on 1 January 2017. They also spoke about other topical issues at the SCC – notably the SCC Centennial celebrations, the Treaty Lab innovation Prize, and the film The Quiet Triumph.
FAI Secretary General Heidi Merikalla-Teir and FAI Chairperson Mika Savola, in turn, shared their experience with the 2013 FAI Arbitration Rules, including the FAI caseload, consolidation of cases, and challenges to arbitrators.
