Webinar: Rethinking Online Arbitration: Insights from the eBRAM COVID-19 ODR Scheme

31 March 2021

The COVID-19 Pandemic is having an increasing impact on the arbitration community globally. In response to the Pandemic, major arbitration institutions have adopted effective measures for conducting arbitration online. The eBRAM International Online Dispute Resolution Centre (eBRAM) has recently developed a dedicated ODR platform for its COVID-19 ODR Scheme, which includes a multi-tier dispute resolution process, from negotiation, mediation to arbitration.

There are many salient issues in managing online arbitration proceedings, i.e., confidentiality of online hearing, documents exchange, signing of documents, the enforceability of awards. The eBRAM’s COVID-19 ODR Scheme and Platform have many new features, which sets a new standard for conducting arbitration online. For example, the Platform provides a self-hosted video conferencing tool with e-signing technology, file sharing, and other new functions dedicated to arbitration proceedings, which helps arbitrators and disputing parties to manage online proceedings more effectively in a secure environment.

Professor Philip Yang will review the eBRAM Platform and the COVID-19 ODR Scheme and share his insights on conducting arbitration online.
