How to Run a Seamless, Efficient and Innovative International Arbitration

WAW’s panel on the role of Arbitration Specialists, Paralegals and Legal Assistants in International Arbitration will discuss their dynamic and evolving responsibilities considering the post-COVID-19 environment. The transition towards hybrid models combining virtual hearings and occasional in-person meetings has led to the development of new skills needed by legal assistants and paralegals that include technological and logistical knowledge. More specifically, this panel will address: What are the key functions of a paralegal in today’s virtual arbitration? What are the essential roles they may play in an arbitration to run efficiently? As an example, how can technology optimize document production, organizing and attention to detail? What part do they play during the various stages of the arbitration?
