Procedural Fairness in International Courts and Tribunals

University of Surrey

September 19, 2014 – September 20, 2014


The Surrey International Law Centre of the School of Law of the University of Surrey with the support of the Institute of Advanced Studies, the McCoubrey Centre of the University of Hull and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (‘BIICL') will host a two-day workshop on the identification of core standards of procedural fairness before international courts and tribunals. A topical and timely subject for study, the question of procedural fairness entails the identification of fundamental principles inherent to the judicial and arbitral processes. Whilst the manifestation of such core standards of fairness will necessarily diverge according to the particular forum, the workshop aims to identify their essence with reference to the procedural issues arising in practice.

The workshop committee warmly welcomes all interested persons to participate in the workshop. Interested parties should register by 31 August. The fee for participation in the two-day workshop is £100 along with £50 for the conference dinner, which will feature a dinner speech by Professor Philippe Sands QC. A total of 11 CPD hours have been accredited to this event for barristers and solicitors.
